The Chamber of Commerce is asking businesses to display its ‘Shop in Clonmel – Support Local Jobs’ posters to remind people of the importance of making their purchases locally. The cold snap last year had a detrimental effect on local businesses, with many shoppers turning to online sites to purchase presents. Also the tendency of many people to travel to Cork, Waterford and other further afield for Christmas shopping has had, and continues to have, a negative impact on the local economy.
Between now and Christmas Clonmel Chamber of Commerce will be highlighting the importance of supporting local businesses in an effort to support local jobs. They will be doing this through a number of methods and encourage businesses to join with them in promoting the core message.
Businesses that would like additional posters or lists of where Clonmel Shopping Vouchers can be used should contact Kevin Lynch at Clonmel Chamber on 052-6126500.
