‘BLACK FRIDAY’ ACROSS DONEGAL SEES CHRISTMAS TRADING OFF TO A SOLID START

first_imgDonegal businesses are using a little bit of America to kick-start their Christmas campaigns.Black Friday has come to many parts of Donegal this weekend.Today is dubbed Black Friday in the US when shops offer a one or two day sale to start off the festive season shopping spree.And Donegal shops and stores are following their lead by offering major discounts to shoppers this weekend. Many shops including The Cope in Dungloe are now saying ‘thank you’ to their loyal customers as the countdown to Christmas gets well and truly underway.And the good news for the local economy is that all the signs are that we are in for a bumper festive season.The festive lights are turned on in Letterkenny this evening while it is Donegal Town’s turn tomorrow night.The strength of sterling against the euro has meant that most Donegal shoppers are staying at home instead of crossing the border to spend their cash. And stores such as McElhinneys in Ballybofey and Evolve in Letterkenny have noticed an even greater number of visitors from the North coming to Donegal to shop.CEO of Letterkenny Chamber Toni Forrestor said the vast majority of stores in Letterkenny are offering good rates on sterling while local shoppers are spending locally.“All the signs are good that we are going to have a very good Christmas in Letterkenny and hopefully across the county,” she said recently.   ‘BLACK FRIDAY’ ACROSS DONEGAL SEES CHRISTMAS TRADING OFF TO A SOLID START was last modified: November 28th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Black FridayCHristmasdonegalsaleslast_img read more
