Mullingar Goes For Purple 12/12/14

The town of Mullingar will go Purple on the 12 of December from 5pm – 5am.

Mulllingar Town Must Go Purple — Why?

  • Over a quarter of money spent in a local economy is spent in the commercial activity of the early
    evening and night time.
  • Towns that develop their night time economy and integrate it well with their daytime trade
    will prosper, those that do not will fail.”
  • Future town centre trends all point towards the development of leisure and amenity as vital for traders and trade.purple-flag_marketP2
  • The internet accounts for an eighth of all non-food retail sales and everything points to this being a trend that is growing.  If, as retail experts predict, this trend reaches thirty five percent by 2020 that will equate to a 30 percent over supply of retail space in the country.
  • “We are not just competing with the internet. Let’s be practical. This is town versus town

So if you are a business in Mullingar you should make your business a Purple Business!
