Hello and Welcome to April Rediscover Peterhead Newsletter.

 
It is really good to see so many of the town centre businesses open again.  Let’s hope that this is the beginning of the end of lockdowns and restrictions, that we can get back to something approaching business as usual, and all town centre businesses can get back to work.  I hope that the next Producers’ Market on May 1st will bring lots of people into the town centre, buying from local shops, as well as the market.
 
Rediscover Peterhead is also looking to get back to business as usual, and there will shortly be announcements regarding gull control, street cleaning, and the Seafood Festival.

Peterhead's town centre businesses on COVID-19 – "We're ready to welcome you back!"

Peterhead's town centre businesses –
"We're ready to welcome you back."


Peterhead town centre businesses are implementing safety measures aligned to government guidelines. Local customers will find that town centre businesses have been working hard to offer not only safe environments, but new and exciting services, waiting to be explored, which were not available pre-pandemic. Peterhead town centre is ready to welcome you back!

“I know that a lot of businesses that have made changes that are really exciting for their customers. So, whilst everybody's been at home practising social distance and being safe, there are business owners out there who’ve been making improvements to the premises, adding services they never used to have, so actually coming into the town post-lockdown is going to be quite exciting because it's a very different town to what it was when we did go into lockdown – for the better.” – Very Spexy

Peterhead Producers’ Market


On Saturday 3rd April we held our second market and I we are delighted to report that the market was a great success.  The weather was kind to us, we had a good mix of food and a few drink stalls.  All stalls were happy with their trading on the day with a couple reporting their best days trading at any market.  We are very conscious that many town centre businesses were still unable to trade but we felt it was important to try and keep a positive momentum for our Producer Market. It was brilliant to see Marischal Street busy with shoppers and we made a point of speaking to the handful of retailers who were able to open in Marischal Street and Drummers Corner.  The vast majority of businesses we spoke to had seen a good increase in footfall and sales with one retailer reporting a sales increase of 50% based on what they would have expected.
 

Bringing shoppers into the town is the main priority of our market and we want all town centre businesses to be able to engage with our shoppers and benefit from their visit into town.

 

Let us promote your business!

We are offering all levy paying businesses the opportunity to engage with the market customers on Market Day via our Facebook and Instagram accounts. To take part all we need is a specific promotional offer that you would like to offer consumers and we will work with you to promote this to as many people as possible. For our first two markets we have been able to reach out to over 15,000 potential shoppers for each event.  If you would like to discuss how to take advantage of this opportunity, then please contact us via:
Email: marketing@rediscoverpeterhead.co.uk
Or call the BID manager on: 07491 899459


The next scheduled market will be Saturday 1st of May held at Drummers Corner/Marischal Street. We will once again be working closely with the Drummers Corner contractor to deliver another fabulous market.  This means the layout will be a similar to April's market with stalls being located to accommodate the fenced off area on Drummer's Corner.

We will be working hard to ensure a well organised and safe market with a one-way system in operation.
 

Do you want to be a stall holder?

We urge any businesses who are interested in taking part in future markets to contact Alasdair Boyne on alasdair.boyne@outlook.com or 07708 169 813.
