Carrickmacross Chamber of Commerce gift voucher scheme was again very successful this Christmas. There was an increase on last year’s figures. The Christmas period of 2013 saw purchases of over €70,000 spent on gift vouchers. Many retailers have confirmed that they have received gift vouchers in already in 2014, but there is still a large volume of vouchers to be redeemed. The aim of the voucher scheme is to encourage people to shop local. The vouchers are accepted in every shop in Carrickmacross (excluding Lidl & Extra vision). We ask all retailers to get their vouchers to the accountants Amatino, who are upstairs in the Market Square Shopping Centre before the 25th of each month in order to have a cheque for the 1st day of the following month. Carrickmacross Chamber of Commerce gift voucher scheme is run by its members for his members and has no administration costs.
