If you are looking for that special gift this Christmas, that offers plenty of choice then why not try the Antrim Town Gift Card?

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Jim Montgomery is joined by Leslie Harte (Simpson’s Newsagents) and Simon Moon (Retail & Town Centre Re-opening Mobilisation Team) to launch the Antrim Town Gift Card

Launched this week by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council in conjunction with Antrim Town Team, the gift card aims to encourage people to spend more locally and in turn, help businesses recover from the recent pandemic. The card works the same as other shop gift card schemes and can be pre-loaded with any amount from £5 up to £500.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Jim Montgomery said: “Together with the Council’s Back in Business campaign we want the card to encourage local spend and help our businesses recover from the Covid-19 crisis. People who use the card will be able to discover new shops and businesses which they may not have tried before, whilst also visiting some of their favorite places. The gift card can be redeemed through multiple transactions at over 30 participating businesses within Antrim Town, making the perfect gift for a colleague, friend or family member.”
