The Back in Business scheme encourages residents to support local businesses. Every pound you spend will help to protect jobs and secure the future of our towns, villages and retail centres.

This project is part funded by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, the Department for Communities and the Department of Environment, Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

Businesses across Antrim, Ballyclare, Crumlin, Glengormley and Randalstown wish to thank customers for their continued loyalty and support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
To celebrate being ‘Back in Business’ promotions, prizes and giveaways are now available.
If you are a resident and wish to register for a chance to win or for more information on special offers, local entertainment and activities please complete the form below.
