Apo’s mission is to create a rental network that listens and responds to the everyday needs of its members. Apo opened its first location in Barking earlier this year, offering its members access to 597 thoughtfully designed apartments to rent and a bucket list of services that take the hassle out of everyday life, all within a great location that keeps its members connected to the city by train in under 15 minutes.
Apo staff wearing a branded Apo badge will also be available to give tours of the new rental scheme during the market. Alternatively, if you would feel more comfortable booking a one-to-one tour on another date this can be arranged too.
To keep customers, traders and staff as safe as possible customers will be asked to wear masks, social distance and adhere to the markets one-way system when purchasing. Consumption of food and drink will be prohibited within the market and must be taken away from the site.
