Shop Local Vouchers sales topped the €100,000 for the first time since their introduction in 2013. Every € we spend locally has a multiplier effect in our community that benefits us and the local economy. We need to support and value our local shops and businesses as much as possible. While the temptation to travel further afield for perceived savings may be at the fore front of many people’s minds, Wexford Chamber believe that these so-called savings are not beneficial for our town where we all live and work. On line shopping also has an impact on local shopping and remember if you buy local you only have to go back to the local shop, no expense involved.

In a bid to keep money earned in Wexford staying in our town, Wexford Chamber in association with Wexford People introduced the Wexford Chamber Shop Local Voucher in July 2013 and produced beautifully designed local currency vouchers in denominations of €10, €25 and €50. Wexford Chamber ‘Shop Local Vouchers’ can be spent in any shop displaying the ‘Wexford Chamber Shop Local Vouchers Accepted Here’ sign. With over 100 shops and businesses participating there is a wide choice of purchases and services ranging from clothing, jewelry, beauty, hospitality, car and household fuel and much more. They are the perfect Christmas present for family and friends, while allowing them the freedom to choose where and what they buy. See the list below of all the participating businesses.
