TY PAWB has welcomed three new traders who have just opened their doors.

They include a comics and collectables shop, a new food outlet selling Polish cuisine, and the official shop for North Wales Crusaders rugby team.

The Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Andy Williams, visited the town’s arts and culture centre to officially welcome the newest members of the markets family.

BCCM Boarder Collectables is run by Val and Al Giplin and is a shop for comics and graphic novels, mini-figures, Subbuteo sets and all sorts of other collectables.

They say they even make custom items to order including a Lego Wrexham FC player.

In addition, the official North Wales Crusaders Rugby League shop moved in just before Christmas. The outlet stocks replica shirts and club merchandise and you can also buy season tickets from the store.

Maxim Polish Cuisine is the newest member of Tŷ Pawb’s food court. They sell a range of hot traditional Polish dishes to eat in or take away.

Al Gilpin, owner of BCCM Boarder Collectables, said: “We’re really pleased that we’ve now got our stall up and running at Tŷ Pawb.

“We hired a market table here on a few occasions last year and it was great to see the place so full of kids and families, especially on the weekends for the live music and other events.

“We’re really looking forward to more of the same this year, especially now we’ve got a bit more room to display our stock.

“There’s a real opportunity for small businesses like ourselves to thrive here.

“We’re local and we’re passionate about what we sell and I think our customers really appreciate that.”

Cllr Terry Evans, Wrexham Council’s lead member for economic development and regeneration, said: “It’s great to see these local businesses choosing Tŷ Pawb as their new home.

“The diverse food and retail offer we now have is helping to make Tŷ Pawb a real draw for visitors and a regular destination for shoppers.

“With the arts and activities programme for the year now well underway and some huge events recently confirmed including the Grayson Perry exhibition and Dydd Miwsig Cymru taking place in February, 2019 is already shaping up to be a very busy second year for Tŷ Pawb.”
