Mid Ulster District Council is supporting this year’s Independents’ Day campaign which takes place on 4 July by reminding residents to support their local independent retailers and shop local.
There is an impressive retail offering in Mid Ulster with a depth of shopping opportunities available in the district’s 5 town centres- Coalisland, Cookstown, Dungannon, Maghera and Magherafelt.
Independents’ Day reminds us all to consider our current shopping habits and encourages us to shop local and support our local retailers.
The Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Kim Ashton, stressed the importance of supporting local retailers, “We are very fortunate in Mid Ulster to have such a vast and varied selection of independent retailers across our towns and villages. Independents’ Day acts a timely reminder for us all to shop local and support our local traders. For every pound spent with local independent retailers, 70p benefits the local community compared to as little as 5p when shopping at retail multiples.
“I hope residents of Mid Ulster fully embrace Independents’ Day and come out in force to support their local retailers on this day and continue to do so long afterwards!”
The Independent’s Day campaign is being run in conjunction with Retail NI.
