An Average Weekly Shop in Darlington Market

According to figures from the Office of National Statistics 2017 Family Spending in the UK review, the average family weekly food shop comes in at £53.20. (We don’t believe it either!) But Darlington Market rose to the challenge to see how far £53.20 would go in the Covered Market.

Binns House of Fraser

BBC film crew at Darlington Market

The BBC were filming in and around the market hall today, reporting on the announced closure of our House of Fraser store. It is a real shame to see yet another High Street shop disappear from Darlington, with an increase in online buying, shops are forever fighting an uphill battle, resulting in Town Centres across the country witnessing a decline in footfall and an increase in shop closures.
