Public Asked To Start Christmas Shopping Now To Support Irish Jobs and to Minimise December Queues
DublinTown Christmas Lights Will Go Up This Year
DublinTown, the business group of 2,500 businesses in Dublin City centre, is urging the public to commence their Christmas shopping before the December rush as increased on street and in-store space management will be required to meet physical distancing needs. Stores have been gearing up for Christmas and are now ready to meet customer requests.
Customers are asked to support Irish jobs by visiting city centres stores and buying from local retailers. Post Covid, we all want to see a vibrant capital city and to make that a reality we need to make sure we support city businesses, and if purchasing on-line the public are encouraged to buy from sites that support Irish jobs.
Shopping and socialising in the city centre of Dublin under the iconic Christmas lights is a key Christmas memory for many. 2020 has been an extremely difficult year for Dublin city centre businesses. DublinTown has shared that experience with its members and will be unable to provide new Christmas lights on some streets as it would have wished. However it will erect lights on 26 city centre streets including on Grafton and Henry/Mary Streets and many more. The Nollaig Shona Duit Christmas lights sign previously on Wicklow Street will be transferred to Grafton Street.
