“Every €10 spent locally on Irish products generates more than €40 of benefit to the local community” ISME CEO Neil McDonnell
When you spend money with local businesses, they in turn, put that money back into the local community by using local suppliers and employing people which all helps to keep the local economy thriving.
Managing Director of TaxAssist Accountants, Alison McGinley, says: "We feel strongly about supporting local small businesses. It is important for local people and businesses to support one another by taking advantage of the great services we have on our doorstep.
Whilst we are a network of accountants with national coverage, each TaxAssist Accountant is a small local business in their own right. They only trade with local businesses and are very much a part of the community."
To further highlight the ‘Buy Local’ message and create awareness among the public, TaxAssist Accountants is supplying small businesses that have visible premises with window stickers to encourage the public to shop locally with independent businesses as opposed to chains.
“The owners of small businesses we have spoken to are really pleased to back this campaign by placing the stickers in their shop or office windows which is very encouraging,” added Alison.
If you wish to support this initiative, then please share your views using the hashtag #BuyLocal on social media and support your local independent businesses and keep our communities thriving.
