ShopBallinasloe.ie Issues New Town Voucher!
Retail Excellence and the CSO tell us that the largest period for domestic retail spend is the fourth quarter â covering the Black Friday through Xmas period and maybe a little of the New Year Sales.
Given that the lockdown took some 100 plus days out of many businesses, the Big Dig stunted most high street retailers and service providers for the last 24 months with on off disruption and the moves to online shopping the ShopBallinasloe.ie team are announcing the new Ballinasloe Town Voucher, launching Thursday, 15 October.
The vouchers are just like any other voucher but rather than limit you to one store, you can chose any store in town â a full list of participating retailers will be available on www.shopballinasloe.ie
And there is no best before date on the voucher!
These new vouchers are a unique gift alternative which can be used in participating retailers in Ballinasloe and the surrounds and give shoppers a fantastic variety of choice on what to spend their vouchers on while benefiting the town on the whole. The Vouchers can be used in restaurants, cafes, hairdressers, beauty salons, homeware, clothing and even on fuel! Keeping as much as our spending local!
They are a perfect gift idea for Birthdays, Christmas, Communions, Confirmations, Weddings, Retirements etc. A thoughtful and useful gift for all. As we head into the busy gifting season â these vouchers make an ideal bespoke solution for the relative â son, daughter, cousin , grandchild who is overseas and would like their relative to have the comfort of choosing something special from them â either from the comfort of their own home, or at least their own local suppliers.
The idea is simple, asking businesses and consumers in the local area and connected to us - to support the local economy, to attract new business and to help ensure our town prospers.
The Ballinasloe Town Voucher will be commission free and can only be spent locally thus supporting community activity spending and employment.
The money we spend locally is worth up to 5 times that to the local economy as the currency continues to circulate in the same area. This is called the local multiplier effect and is a proven feature of our economy. Retailers and Service Supplies can participate in the scheme by logging online.
This initiative is backed by BACD and Ballinasloe Credit Union and encourages shoppers to âShop Local â Shop Ballinasloeâ, keep our community in business and in turn ensuring local activities are supported.
âVouchers can be purchased from:
