Free Parking to Boost Christmas Shopping in Knowsley

By on Wednesday, November 28, 2012

(Press release: Knowsley Council)

Shoppers in Knowsley will once again enjoy free Saturday parking in the run up to Christmas.

It is hoped the move will make it even more attractive for people to shop local this Christmas, supporting Knowsley’s local town centre traders and markets.

The initiative will apply to all council run car parks and parking bays every Saturday throughout December. All maximum stay restrictions will also be lifted so shoppers can park in any of the council’s car parks for as long as they need, for free.

Knowsley’s town centres have something for everyone – from a bargain hunter’s heaven at Kirkby Market to fantastic locally produced produce at the Prescot Producers’ Market on Saturday, Dec 1. Shoppers can enjoy high street names as well as small, independent retailers in all Knowsley’s shopping centres.

This year, as well as its usual opening days on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, Kirkby Market is open every day from 21 December right through until Christmas Eve. So, come along and stock up on all those last minute bargains and soak up the atmosphere at your friendly, local market.

Plus, every Saturday before Christmas you’ll get a free turn on the Kirkby Market tombola whenever you spend £5 at a participating stall. You could win vouchers to spend on the market and make your Christmas shopping go even further!
