With just six weeks to Christmas, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is urging residents to ‘Think Local’ when shopping for their special gifts this year. By shopping close to home, money is kept within the local economy, helping to boost businesses and as a result, retain jobs.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Jim Montgomery said:

“Our five town centres; Antrim, Ballyclare, Crumlin, Glengormley and Randalstown, as well as our many villages in the Borough have an excellent retail offering. From the larger retailers to the small independent shops, there is lots to choose from and better still, it is right on your doorstep.Following the government guidelines, our local businesses have invested greatly in adopting various health and safety measures, ensuring that they have a safe place for you to shop. All of our businesses have experienced a tough year due to the pandemic, so I encourage everyone to play their part in supporting them and help our local economy recover.”
