There's no sugar-coating it, none of us want to be going through lockdown number two right now... But, unlike back in March, we do have an advantage - we know exactly what needs to be done to keep the country going through these difficult times. It starts with looking after yourself, your family, friends and people in your community by following the government's guidelines here at gov.ie.And it continues with where you decide to spend your money during these six weeks. Click and collect, and delivery services have been a lifeline for Irish businesses during Covid, and using these local services is our best shot at keeping the economy ticking over as we head toward Christmas.
In fact, it's been estimated that if each of us spent just an extra €20 at local Irish businesses, rather than big online international marketplaces, we could boost Ireland's economy by €875 Million over the next three months. With this in mind, we want to reward those who make the extra effort to shop local. That's why, if you can prove to us that you've shopped online at an Irish owned business, we could be giving you back the exact amount of your purchase, to spend again at that same store.
Here's how it works:
For the next 3 weeks, we're asking you to upload a photo of your order confirmations or receipts on, Instagram the hashtag #iLoveLocal, tagging the business you shopped at and iRadio. Do this, and you could be one of the lucky people who gets the price of their entire purchase back, to spend in that same store again!
