Shop local and support local employment this ChristmasNovember 14, 2019 ADMIN 0
Don’t let Christmas shopping get you down this year, get started early so you can really enjoy the festive season. If every shopper spent some of their allocated Christmas spend in Balbriggan – we could help to make a real difference to our local communities. Local businesses are the life-blood of the economy. Buying local helps to support business owners who either produce their own artisan products or employ members of your family, neighbours and friends.
So why should you spend some of your heard earned cash locally?
If you buy products and services from local businesses or eat in a local cafe, your money is pumped back into the local economy. How is this possible? Every time you buy something from a shop or service in Balbriggan, you help the shopkeeper pay their bills and keep their business running. The more regularly you shop, the more likely it is to stay in business and to grow.
When a business thrives it can create jobs for your friends, neighbours and members of your family. These new jobs provide more money to spend in the local economy. When more money is spent locally, more jobs are created, and that means, there’s more money to support local fundraising drives for local charities, sporting events/clubs and festivals. So not only do local businesses benefit, but our communities can continue to be vibrant places where we want to live, work and bring up our kids.
So this Christmas think before your buy. If every shopper spent some of their allocated Christmas spend in Balbriggan — we could help to make a real difference to our local communities.
