We’re often asked what the I in Armagh I means – something we’ve always left open to interpretation.
But it very much lends itself towards our push of supporting Independent businesses – after all we are one ourselves.
Times are changing and the high street is constantly under threat but the businesses that operate locally are the very heartbeat of the community and we want to support them, just as they support us, and you.
We could throw out the old cliché that by shopping at an independent business, you’re supporting a local person and their family but it’s a cliché for a reason – because it’s true.
We originally launched out Independent Card a week before the pandemic began….they say timing is everything.
But we have been determined to put our project back in motion and to support local independent businesses – hence the re-launch of the Independent Card.
What is the Independent Card?
It’s a small credit card-size discount card which gives you access – it’s your key – to exclusive offers and discounts at some of the best local independent businesses Co. Armagh has to offer.
Members can receive huge discounts on services or purchases made in and around the Orchard county – and beyond! The card is valid for 12 months from date of purchase and will be posted out to you.
From kids eat free at Sally McNally’s to 5% off at Traynor Furnishings; 10% off at Style Me Boutique and many more…
