​With over twenty independent retailers under one roof along with an excellent cafe and delicatessen whynot? is a place that the local community love and where visitors come back to again and again.
For customers... whynot? is a unique opportunity to browse and buy locally produced and sourced products and services not seen before on the high street... all under one roof.

For producers... whynot? means you can become part of a great community of small businesses without the huge financial outlay and time commitment of having a full-time shop of your own. You can rent your own space for just a day at a time or a weekend or a week or a month - as long as you like! Or you can simply let us do the selling on your behalf. You don't even have to be there!

For everyone... whynot? is a place to gather and meet like-minded people who want to share in the revival of the high street... a place that serves them well and belongs to everyone.
