Mullingar Chamber Shopping Voucher Scheme Launch

Shop Local, Support Local

The Mullingar Chamber Shopping Voucher Scheme with support from Flynn Fuels, Mullingar Credit Union and Westmeath County Council was launched on Thursday 29th November, in the Greville Arms Hotel. This shop local initiative supports local retailers, businesses and community by encouraging local spending. In 2017, approximately €200,000 of vouchers were sold and Retail Excellence Ireland research shows that this creates value to the extent of €800,000 to the local economy!

Christmas is a particularly popular period for the Mullingar Chamber Shopping Voucher Scheme as vouchers are the perfect gift for friends and family and as an employer, the gift of vouchers to employees up to the value of €500 is tax-free! Vouchers can be purchased in the Mullingar Chamber office or the Mullingar Credit Union.

Nuala-Anne Curley, Office Manager Mullingar Chamber “thanked the local business community for supporting this initiative. It is designed to promote spending with local retailers and businesses and enhance economic growth for the town. The key message here is shop local, support local.”

Mullingar Chamber, with the support of Westmeath County Council under the Service Level Agreement to market Mullingar, were able to implement a new online sales and redemption tracking portal to improve the ongoing co-ordination and security of this shop local initiative. Mark Brindley, the Planning Partnership was the first sale to be processed under the new system.
