Bag a Good Deal in Donaghadee
Shoppers in Donaghadee this Saturday are in for an added treat as several shops and businesses have come together for another shop local initiative. Participating shops will have a free gift of a Donaghadee Bag while stocks last together with special offers for customers.
The Honorary Secretary of the Association, John Caldwell, explained “Donaghadee is the fastest growing town in the borough with a population now of around 8,000. However town centre businesses are facing pressures on a number of fronts – poor car parking, large shopping centres in nearby towns and of course the growth of on-line shopping. We want to keep our town centre vibrant and to do this our traders need footfall. We want our community to think local and support local businesses. As the slogan says – Keep your town in business – Keep your business in town. Our local independent traders cannot always compete in price terms but factor in the cost of transport and service and convenience and they will usually offer better value for money”
The shops include Bow Bells, County Hardware, Drop-in Thrift Shop, Dunn’s Footwear, Grattan’s, Harbour & Co, Maritime, Pattons, Pier 36, Rooms, Saints and Sinners. Wright’s Butchers.
