West Lancashire MP, Rosie Cooper said:
“The Advertiser deserves to be congratulated for its campaign encouraging people to shop local and I am delighted to give it my full backing.
“Ormskirk is famed as an historic market town. People visit Ormskirk for a day out because of the market bringing some hustle and bustle to the town on Thursday’s and Saturday’s. In recent years we have welcomed the added dimension of the European traders, which I personally like. We cannot underestimate the importance of the market to Ormskirk, in terms of history and its present. There is no question that people’s shopping habits change quite rapidly these days. We have seen the move from town centres, to out of town, to now online shopping. However, I truly believe there is always a place for Ormskirk market.”
