Support your local shops for Christmas

IF you haven’t already started your Christmas shopping then now is the time to start thinking about it – and look no further than your local town that has all the answers!

Offering a wide variety of wonderful shops, unique boutiques and plenty of tasty treats when you need a breather, Lurgan is a one stop shopping area that will inspire you to find all those perfect festive gifts. With over 200 retail outlets combining multinational retailers with a fantastic fusion of independent outlets providing something a little bit different for the discerning shopper, there really is something for everyone.

With ample free parking within walking distance of the main shopping street as well as a variety of coffee shops and restaurants for relaxing in when your arms get tired from carrying the shopping bags, it is easy to spend a day enjoying some retail therapy in Lurgan!

And the good news is that some shops will also be opening their doors for late night shopping every Friday in the run-up to Christmas! Millar’s Shoes, Love Coffee, Sporties Barbers and Around a Pound will stay open in the evening and from next Friday, December 2, Spiders Web will also be open for late night shopping!

“Lurgan really is a retail destination full of shopping delights, especially at Christmas,” commented Councillor Carla Lockhart, Chair of the Development Committee.

“Offering something for everyone including those big retail hitters as well as exclusive boutiques that are unique to Lurgan alone, you are guaranteed a superb shopping experience!

“Shopping local has so many benefits both for traders and shoppers including saving on travelling costs, getting a good bargain, supporting local jobs and helping to keep the town centre thriving!

“So this Christmas, check out what’s on your doorstep before going anywhere else!”
