Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council have launched a new campaign to encourage everyone to support local businesses across the borough as the gradual easing of restrictions begins, and many businesses begin to reopen.

Entitled ‘We’ve missed you’, the campaign will promote a strong support local message encouraging everyone to spend locally to show their ‘love’ for local businesses at this crucially important time for many, after a long period of closure.

The campaign has been made possible through funding from the Department for Communities’ (DfC) Covid-19 Recovery Revitalisation Programme which was introduced to support towns and city centres in their recovery.

The council has worked proactively with local businesses to ensure that social distancing and hygiene practices have been implemented for the safe return of customers.  These important measures will help reassure employees and customers that establishments are, and will continue to be, Covid-19 safe.  It is hoped that strict safety measures will entice shoppers to move away from online spending, and return to experience face-to-face hospitality and personalised customer service.

This engaging campaign will feature a wide variety of promotional activities in the weeks and months ahead, as the council continues to encourage everyone to stay local and ‘Love’ our borough businesses to help them breathe life back into our city, towns and villages.
