Steven Foster, Centre Director at White Rose, said:
“We’re pleased to be supporting a number of local businesses with our Yorkshire Market this October, giving independents a platform to showcase their offerings in a busy retail setting.
“The range of unique, handmade goods are always popular with our guests, and it’s the perfect opportunity to get a head-start on the Christmas shopping.”
White Rose is the perfect destination for unmissable family fun this October half term, boasting more than 100 shops including Flying Tiger, The Entertainer, Build-a-Bear Workshop, and more, plus family-friendly restaurants such as Five Guys, Fridays, and Nando’s – all under one roof.
