Shop local this Christmas – Cllr Stephen Dunlop

Tuesday 26 November 2019

Green Party Cllr for Bangor Central, Stephen Dunlop has urged people to shop local this Christmas.

Cllr Stephen Dunlop said.   

“I’d encourage everyone to get into their local town centre and support our independent retailers and business owners this Christmas.

“Shopping habits have changed and online shopping is handy for many people particularly for anyone struggling to get out and about.

“However, it’s about balance and a few hours around local shops and maybe a coffee afterwards is a great way to connect with your community.

“Indeed, people are realising that Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales from big chain stores may not be all they are cracked up to be with items often cheaper at other points in the year.

“Independent retailers are part of our community and they are people with families and community connections.”

Stephen Dunlop concluded:

“Let’s give our local, indepedent businesses our support this Christmas.”
