There you will be able to find Sweets, clothing, workwear, fancy dress, confectionary, DVD’s, Blu Ray, pet food, pet accessories, artificial flowers, health products, stationary and much more

Tracey’s Café and Paul the Butchers will remain at the Butchers market.

The Butcher’s Market was opened in 1848 and the General Market in 1879; they are both now in need of essential maintenance, repairs and modernisation.

The refurbishment is part of Wrexham Townscape Heritage Scheme plans that looks to improve and develop  Wrexham City Centre Conservation Area.

The modernisation of these listed buildings will not be to the detriment of their listed status, but will provide tangible benefits to traders and visitors. Wrexham Council said renovating and future proofing markets will draw in  new audiences and generate increased footfall and help them become a city centre destination in their own right.

Wrexham Council's lead member for Economy & Regeneration, Councillor Nigel Williams said: “We hope that our traders will have success in the new temporary location on Queen’s Square.

“We expect that the city centre location will attract new trade, as well as providing a convenient location to serve their loyal customers.

“Support local businesses in Wrexham by visiting our Markets today.”
