Wexford Chamber with the support of the Wexford People launched the “Shop Local Vouchers” in July 2013. This initiative is proving to be very popular among Wexford consumers and Wexford businesses with over 100 businesses accepting the Shop Local Vouchers in exchange for goods. Wexford Retailers came out tops this Christmas when over €40,000 of Wexford Chamber Shop Local Vouchers was circulated around town. Bought locally but more importantly spent locally.
One local Wexford business rewarded their staff with Wexford Chamber Shop Local Vouchers. Not only did their money go straight back into the local economy but over half of the Shop Local Vouchers were spent in their very own business by their own members of staff. It was a win win situation for this business and additionally they benefitted from the Small Benefits Exemption Scheme.
“Wexford Chamber are delighted to see this new initiative for the town proving to be so popular and I hope that people will continue to support and value our local shops and businesses so that our hard earned money will keep pumping around the local economy” said Madeleine Quirke, CEO Wexford Chamber. “Keeping our shops open for business and supporting local jobs has to be a priority for all of us.”
