The main focus was on shop local and Shop LK and what Letterkenny was doing compared to other towns. Shop LK started in 2004, long before ‘shop local’ was trendy.The voucher system was put into place in 2006 and to date €1.2million worth of vouchers have been sold. This is great for Letterkenny as all this money goes straight back into the local community.Toni Forrester Letterkenny Chamber CEO remarked “Shop local is so important for our business community to survive and thrive, to reach €1.2 million has been an amazing achievement. Taking into account the multiplier effect we believe this figure could be doubled at the very least.”Through Shop LK Letterkenny is fighting back and taking control of its own future. In general retailers in the town are reporting better Christmas sales and with the sterling rates available we hope the trend will last.With such successful shop local seasonal campaigns, a huge range of businesses, great rates for sterling and attitudes turning back to shopping local in Letterkenny; things can only get better.
