Traxx Sheffield is under new management! We would like to introduce ourselves as the new owners of TRAXX market. We are Shaun and Katie – some locals may recognise us as we own TOYKO Toy Shop on Station Road, Chapeltown. Since opening the toy shop in November 2021, we have been heavily involved in the Chapeltown community and have loved being a part of it. Toyko toy shop started trading at TRAXX in February this year and absolutely loved the community/family feel of it, so when we heard there was a possibility of it closing, we were keen to do what we could to stop this.
We are very excited about this new venture and look forward to working with the community to improve the market and make it the real heart of the community, as we believe it should (and could) be!
Together, we hope to improve the market through greater advertising, particularly to the wider area surrounding Chapeltown where many don’t even know that TRAXX exists! We also hope to hold lots of family friendly events, as we know that these are very popular with people in Chapeltown and really help to bring the community together.
The market is being run under our new company Heart of Chapeltown – Community Enterprise Ltd. This is a not for profit company so we will really be relying on the support of the community in fundraising and grants to help the market grow and reach its full potential.
We hope that you will join us for our big FREE relaunch event 29th-31st July, where we will have food, stall holders and lots of entertainment to celebrate that TRAXX Sheffield is under new management. We already have lots of stalls booked in and you can find updates through our Facebook event page, linked below. For all trade enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
