During a recent survey at Fleetwood Market, Rene gave her thoughts about shopping at the seaside shopping experience.

“I have shopped here for many years now, travelling once (or maybe even twice) a week to the market by taxi.

My first visit was with my mother, now I know most of the stall holders and they all look after me when I stop by. There’s such a fantastic range of stalls on offer, I buy my perfume from Stella, dishcloths from Mark, cards from Mavis and I’m spoilt for choice when it comes to buying my jumpers and raincoats.

Finding out I had won £50 market shopping vouchers was such a lovely surprise. I need some new slippers so that’s the first thing I’ll be buying today.”
