All the staff at Car Hire Liverpool Airport are shocked by the news but hope that there is some kind of silver lining for the businesses involved.
Broadway Indoor Market in Liverpool have been told they have until the end of May to leave, as the council does not have the funds to continue running the market. The market in Norris Green has not been filled to capacity and has been operating at a loss, does house a variety of stores.
Some of the traders have been based there for a number of decades and have been told that they will not be given any kind of compensation. A total of 32 people are currently employed at the market.
One of the people being asked to leave is Steve Moss, who has a hairdressing business on the site. He said, “The market is closing down completely and everybody has been told they’ll have to leave. Nobody’s getting any compensation or remuneration and we’ve got to find new accommodation. Some of the stallholders have been here for many years and loads of people come to the market to socialise. It means we’ll have no business, no livelihood and 32 people will be out of work and on the dole.”
The council is under pressure to save £156 million and have looked at all options to save anywhere they can. The building which has a London based owner, was being operated by managing agents Fifield Glyn, but will now revert back to its original form.
