Entrepreneurs will be able to try out new business ideas in new glass retail units which have been built in Lynn town centre.

The three glass cubicles which have been put up in Broad Street and St Dominic’s Square have so far created quite a stir with shoppers.

The Vancouver Quarter has set up the new units to help existing traders along with those who are looking to get off the ground.

Centre manager Abbie Panks is pleased with the response so far.

She said: “We have had a lot of interest in the units since they were built.

“A lot of people have been asking what they are for and we’ve had calls from others wanting to book space.

“These units are a really good idea for anyone wanting to start a business and move it forward.

“These are a stepping stone with the ultimate aim of getting a shop.”

Two traders, who sell e-cigarettes and buy gold, have swapped their gazebos and moved into the new weather proof units.

A beautician is also taking on the third unit, which stands outside the Sainsbury’s store.

The centre still has slots available for the cubicles, which installed by King’s Lynn Glass.

Small businesses were given a hand last year by West Norfolk Council and its Test the Market initiative.

Traders were able to trial an idea by taking on a market stall in Lynn and Hunstanton.
