Council launches 'Love Your Place, Spend Local' campaign

August 12, 2020

You’re always welcome in Lisburn & Castlereagh.

Here in Northern Ireland, what makes us so special is our people – they’re at the heart of our shopping, dining and hospitality. Doing business with local stores not only makes sense, it feels good too. The friendly faces you see are the people you’re directly supporting when you choose to shop local.

In Lisburn & Castlereagh, our bakers, florists, chefs and coffee shop owners are right here to welcome you.  They’re very glad to see their customers coming in. When you spend local, you’ll know it matters.

If you’re planning to pick up some essentials, buy a special gift, meet a friend for coffee or you need a new outfit, Lisburn City Centre and its surrounding villages and suburbs have everything you need.

You can support a range of fantastic independent family-owned stores and boutiques, alongside lots of your favourite high street brands.

There’s specialist knowledge, great value and plenty of craic when you shop with the local butcher, bakery, deli or greengrocer. These businesses can’t wait to welcome you back and have been working hard to provide a safe and enjoyable experience.

Alderman Jim Dillon MBE, Chair of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Development Committee commented, “Now more than ever we should support our local businesses. If you spend locally, you’re supporting jobs and keeping money in the local economy. Lisburn & Castlereagh is very much open for business and our wonderful retailers and businesses will ensure you’re always welcome.”
