Leitrim gets ready for Black Friday

As shoppers prepare for Black Friday tomorrow business people around the county are expecting an influx of trade  and are preparing with a myriad of bargains.

From discounts to special offers, competitions to freebies tomorrow is anticipated to be one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

You can check out this week's Leitrim Observer to see all the bargains on offer but the advice is to get there early to ensure you get the pick of the offers.

Meanwhile Carrick-on-Shannon officially celebrated Black Friday this week with the launch of their Black Friday Facebook page.
Carrick-on-Shannon & District Credit Union Ltd is teaming up with up to 50 local businesses to offer a range of discounts this Friday as well as late night shopping.

Traditionally Black Friday, which is a USA phenomenon, happens the day after the Thanksgiving Day holiday in the US and is catching on here in Ireland also, particularly in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Retailers in Carrick-on-Shannon on this, the biggest shopping day of the year, are offering a big range of in-store discounts.
Carrick-on-Shannon & District Credit Union Ltd developed the facebook page late last week to show people the strength and competitiveness of Carrick-on-Shannon retailers with the hope of enticing people to shop local and protect local jobs and businesses.

Carrick-on-Shannon is no different to any other rural town having suffered financially in the years since the recession. Carrick-on-Shannon & District Credit Union Ltd which is at the heart of the local community for the past 45 years with over 6,000 members are delighted to be behind this new initiative for Carrick-on-Shannon giving something back to our local community as many of our members work locally in the retail sector.

The goal is to get people interested in shopping in Carrick-on-Shannon, where our retailers believe that they can offer the same value as their big name competitors.

Visit Carrick-on-Shannon, shop local and protect local jobs is the message to get out there this Black Friday…. Check out Black Friday Carrick-on-Shannon Facebook page now to see what’s on offer on your doorstep! You won’t be disappointed!
