More hours, more shopping
A decision made by Bradford Council last week has granted one of the city’s top shopping destinations planning permission to operate in extended hours.
Bradford Bazaar had previously had restrictions placed on Sunday openings due to possible disruption to local residents, but following consultation with all concerned parties, an agreement was reached which was amenable to everyone.
The new ruling will allow the premises to stay open until 8pm every Sunday and Bank holiday, and until 10pm on the two days preceding each Eid.
Bradford Bazaar owner and director, Jasvinder Singh, said: “I am delighted that the Bazaar can now open longer on what is our busiest day of the week.
“It was painful to watch customers turning away on a Sunday because we had to put the shutters down but now that will soon become a distant memory”.
General Manager, Adrian Patrick, says he now wants to focus on the future of the site which he says is looking brighter every day.
“We are in a good place strategically with our range of products, our location and our service proposition,” he said. “Our reputation is growing rapidly as the foremost Asian bazaar in the North of England”
Bradford Bazaar which was the brain child of Jasvinder Singh has recently celebrated its second anniversary.
From relatively small beginnings it has grown in both stature and size, doubling the number of units to just over 100 and opening five days a week.
