Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is encouraging residents to shop local to help support local businesses. With current local restrictions now in place, we want to continue to support local traders in any way we can.
We are calling on the local community to consider buying from local outlets when making purchasing decisions, especially in regards to the local hospitality and retail sector. They need your support right now during these challenging times. Whether you are shopping for Christmas gifts, groceries or looking for a local takeaway delivery, please remember to shop local and enjoy what’s on your doorstep.
Our local retailers and businesses have gone above and beyond to support our communities in their time of need. Now it’s your turn to return that support.
To access up to date information regarding the current business offering and community support available in the Lisburn and Castlereagh area, we would to remind residents to check out our easy-to-use online hub, the ‘Community Services Directory’.
