Call to support Mexborough High Street and local business

Mexborough Town Centre is open for business following what has been a challenging 18 months.

The High Street has a host of independent shops, national retailers and local market traders.

Whether you are looking to catch up with friends at a café, pick up a new pair of shoes or carry out your weekly food shop, there is something for everyone in Mexborough.

Councillor Glyn Jones, Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Housing and Business, said: “We are encouraging residents of Mexborough and the surrounding areas to continue to use Mexborough High Street and the town centre and give it a try if they haven’t visited for a while.

“Now Covid restrictions have been lifted it is more important than ever to support our local businesses whenever we can. Let’s get behind our businesses and buy local.”

The flyover from Greens Way to Bank Street remains closed but the town remains easily accessible. There are alternative routes into the town centre and many free parking areas are available.

Visitors to the town are able to access these by entering from West Street, John Street and onto Station Road.

Cllr Sean Gibbons, Mexborough Ward Member, said: “Mexborough town centre has a lot to offer. It is really encouraging to see new businesses popping up all over town. It is very important for the local economy that people support our local businesses and ‘Shop Local’.

 “In Mexborough town centre, there is an increasing variety of offerings from butchers to bakers, florists to jewellers, shoe shops to pit stops. Call in and support your local shops.”

Businesses based in Mexborough can also boost their profile by signing up for free to ShopAppy, a town-based website that provides local shops with a 24-hour shop window.

For the businesses who sign up, customers can browse, book, buy, collect or get a convenient home delivery with one simple checkout via your very own mini e-commerce site.

Mexborough Market also remains open and stallholder Dave Binns is excited about the potential in the town since setting up his business D&K Bargains in the past year.

He said: “People must have thought we were crazy setting up our business during a pandemic.

“We only ever had one town in mind, Mexborough has a wealth of heritage and so much potential and we felt we could add something as a small business to the town.

“It’s been a great journey over the last 12 months and we continue to support the growth of the town and the businesses here.

“The future looks bright as we continue to grow and offer a bigger range to the people of Mexborough.”
