New Location for The Hoover Lady

September 10, 2014

Carol Hubbard, better known by shoppers at Leicester Market as The Hoover Lady, has moved to a brand-new location at Europe’s largest covered market.

As part of the latest Leicester Market developments, The Hoover Lady is now located at Unit 47, located behind Café Bocca/opposite Nationwide Building Society.

One of Leicester Market’s long-standing traders, shoppers often head straight to The Hoover Lady for a host of vacuum cleaner accessories and spares, with Carol’s stall stocking the largest selection in Leicester.

Carol is the latest trader to move into the new lockable units behind Café Bocca, which have provided a home to three more long-standing traders since June.

Brennan’s Candy Cabin, who is now a third generation trader, specialises in retro sweets, chocolates, biscuits and often stocking as many as 75 different varieties of pick and mix and is now located at Unit 46.

Ida’s Haberdashery, which sells yarn, ribbon, string as well as trimmings, have found a new home in Unit 45.

Also, The Foam Place and Nets and Furnishings, both owned and operated by Ashik Bhimani and his family for the past 33 years are now located in Units 44A and 44B. The Foam Place specialises in all grades of foam cut to size, which customers can order and pick up the following day.

Of the five units within this area of the Market, one is still available to let.  If you are interested, please contact Shaun Miles on 0116 454 0242.
