Jacko's Jackets

After 25 years on Bury Market as proprietor of Jacko's Jackets jacket potato stall, Bill Jackson is hanging up his bandana so that he can enjoy his retirement.

Bill said: "It has been a pleasure to be part of such a well-known, buzzing market, serving and chatting to my customers for so long. I would like to thank all my loyal customers for their business and also the market's staff who have always been helpful. I also wish the new owners of the stall all the best for the future.""After working for 50 years I am now ready to enjoy a bit of relaxation and pursue my hobbies but will always remember my 25 years on the market with a great fondness, especially for all the people I met."

Andrew Heyes, markets manager, said: "Bill is one of those traders who make Bury Market the hugely popular attraction it is. I would like to pass on my best wishes to Bill and hope he has a long and happy, and most well deserved, retirement.
