‘You Got It For Less’ in Lisburn this weekend
Starting this Thursday 21 November 2013, a 3–day discount shopping event will run across Lisburn City Centre, involving more than 70 stores.
Over the three–day period the majority of shops taking part will also be open for late night shopping on Thursday 21 November and Friday 22nd November.
The event has been designed to offer Christmas shoppers a range of unique discounts and the great value to be found in Lisburn’s family–friendly, city centre atmosphere.
Over the three day period the number of participating stores will offer unique discounts to customers. “You Got It For Less” point–of–sale material throughout the city centre will assist shoppers to find participating retailers and traders.
Participating shops include big–brand high–street stores and top–quality independent retailers offering everything from high–end designer fashion to unique gifts for all the family at Christmas.
Alderman Allan Ewart, Chairman of Lisburn City Centre Management, said: “Lisburn is the second largest city in Northern Ireland with a strong history of independent retailing and this Christmas, with over 70 stores taking part, traders in Lisburn City Centre have shown overwhelming support for the campaign. This is the start of a series of festive events happening over the coming weeks that will see Lisburn as the place to add to your shopping list this year.’
Alderman Jim Dillon, Vice Chairman of Lisburn City Council’s Economic Development Committee, said: “The Council and Lisburn City Centre Management have worked imaginatively to continually attract shoppers and visitors into the City Centre and the “You Got It For Less” Campaign is no exception. We hope the three–day period will be a great success for shoppers hoping to snap up a bargain and for traders to increase sales. It will also make the city a welcoming environment.’’
As well as the discount campaign in the City Centre the Council is also supporting a charity car park in Castle Street which will be open from 21 November until 24 December to make available even more car park spaces to visitors. A discretionary contribution to charity is recommended with a number of charities due to be represented over the period.
Andrew Lowry from C.R Lowry Jewellers and Julian Stevenson from Sports Dock join Alderman Allan Ewart, Chairman of Lisburn City Centre Management and Alderman Jim Dillon, Vice Chairman of the Council’s Economic Development Committee to celebrate the start of the You Got It For Less weekend in Lisburn City Centre which runs from 21–23 November.
