Make It Local

Make it Local is an initiative that is designed to encourage people within the district to shop locally and support local businesses. 

This promotional initiative, which has been running for several years now, is designed to promote and bolster homegrown companies across Newry, Mourne and Down, by encouraging people to shop and spend locally.

Earlier this year, Council issued a call for businesses from both urban and rural locations, operating instore and/or online, to submit an expression of interest to feature in ‘Make It Local’ over the next year. 

The Council completed an Autumn Make it Local campaign working with 15 businesses. Businesses featured in social and print media campaigns, billboards, and magazines. Council’s Christmas campaign is now live.  Council worked with 6 businesses for the Christmas campaign.  

There is still time for businesses to get involved in the Spring 2023 campaign.  To apply to feature in the Spring 2023 Make It Local campaign, please take a few minutes to complete the short survey which can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CHMPNTB.
