New ‘Confidence Mark’ Launched For Mid Ulster Businesses
Mid Ulster District Council has launched a new ‘confidence mark’ for local businesses.
New ‘Reconnect With Confidence’ window stickers are being distributed to retailers and other customer-facing premises as they open their doors again and welcome their customers back, helping to provide reassurance about the measures businesses have taken to ensure a safe return.
Reassurance is a key element in helping to attract shoppers and visitors back into town centres, as Chair of the Council, Councillor Cathal Mallaghan, explained:
After such a long period when so many of our normal and seemingly simple day-to-day activities were suspended or curtailed, like nipping into a shop or stopping for a coffee, there’s a natural concern about just picking up where we left off. Businesses, particularly in our retail and hospitality sectors, have been working extremely hard to put measures in place to re-open safely for their customers and staff – from new ways of working and social distancing measures to enhanced cleaning – and these new window stickers are a very visible way to provide reassurance to visitors that their safety has been prioritised and that they can reconnect with their local shops with confidence.
Stephen Mohan, who has shops in both Cookstown and Dungannon, said:
“It’s great to see our towns re-open with a lot of work carried out to facilitate a safe shopping experience. At this time your town needs you more than ever”.
