Kirkgate Market Launches 'Shop and Drop' Scheme

KIRKGATE Market has launched a UK first ‘shop and drop’ scheme to boost sales

The free of charge market service has been launched to let shoppers store their purchases in a secure chill room on site, and collect them at the end of the day.

“Leeds Confidential is a big fan of old school markets like Kirkgate, and this scheme is exactly the sort of sharp thinking that will attract some much needed new customers."

The new cool store room – open from 8am to 6pm - is located at the bottom end of the market in the purpose-built information centre.

All customers have to is simply hand over their goods to reception, and are given a ticket to present when they come back to collect.

The scheme is not just for chilled items – the store room can accommodate heavy or bulky purchases too, which customers can collect later in the day.

And to make it even easier to support your local market between 5pm and 6pm, cars can drive right up to the rear entrance of the market to make collection even easier.

“Leeds Confidential is a big fan of old school markets like Kirkgate, and this UK first scheme is exactly the sort of sharp thinking that will attract some much needed new customers to the myriad of shops in the market,” says Confidential editor Simon Binns.

Along with this new initiative, the market has also recently introduced smart new signage and a map of the market to make it easier to find your favourite stalls.
