Keep the spirit of Christmas alive with special Waterford Shop Local vouchers
By Erin Ní Ghacháin
Covid-19 has cast a shadow over the traditional office Christmas party season. But Waterford Chamber has come up with a novel way to keep the festive spirit alive while supporting local businesses during these difficult times.
This year Waterford Chamber is urging local businesses to instead reward their staff by gifting them special Waterford Shop Local gift vouchers instead of the traditional night out.
The gift vouchers can be redeemed in more than 160 outlets across Waterford city and Tramore and come in denominations of €10, €25 and €50.
Waterford Chamber President Danette Connolly urged businesses to help each other as much as they can as the countdown to Christmas gets underway.
“Now more than ever, we need to make every effort to boost our local economy. Businesses are in dire need of support and what a difference the vouchers will make once everything starts to reopen again,” said Ms Connolly.
