Businesses in Carrick on Shannon are invited to work with the Carrick on Shannon Chamber of Commerce on a new initiative for the town. Following a suggestion at the recent Trade Review Meeting, My Carrick plan to introduce a “My Carrick Discount Card”.

The purpose of same is to offer visitors and locals a financial incentive to shop, stay and visit various attractions in Carrick-on-Shannon. 

Seeking out special offers has increased in importance for consumers and My Carrick believe that a collective approach across a wide selection of businesses will increase awareness of Carrick on Shannon as a great value destination.

How will it work?

My Carrick members are asked to put forward a special offer that will be exclusive to My Carrick.  This may be a pre determined discount amount (somewhere in the region of 5% to 20%) or something free such as a free dessert, coffee, 3rd night free or whatever is suitable for their business. 

A My Carrick discount card will be printed in the new My Carrick brochure– this is the updated Ultimate Guide to Carrick on Shannon which was very well received in its first publication.

The My Carrick discount card will also be downloadable from the My Carrick website and Facebook pages.  New Special Offers sections on each will highlight the offers available in the town.

Businesses will be provided with “My Carrick Discount Card” posters to highlight their involvement in the scheme and to spotlight their special offer in store/in business.

A high profile launch of this discount card initiative is planned for early September.

Businesses interested in getting involved are asked to contact Carrick on Shannon Chamber of Commerce on T: +353 (0)71 962 2245 E: info@carrickonshannon.ie W: www.carrickonshannon.ie

The My Carrick Project is funded by Carrick on Shannon Chamber of Commerce.
