Bag a bargain during Buncrana's
BUNCRANA traders have
joined the 'Fiver Friday' phenomenon launched by RTE
Liveline's Joe Duffy to boost businesses suffering
in the recession.
Fiver Friday will be launched in Buncrana this
Friday July 25 and will run on the last Friday of
each month thereafter. Some 44 businesses have
signed up to take part so far.
"After running a Festive Fiver Friday last December
on a significantly smaller scale the chamber decided
that it would encourage all businesses, members and
non members, to come together and promote 'the High
Street' as a thoroughfare offering great service,
great quality, great bargains and value for money,"
said administrator John Keyes.
Shoppers are urged to bag a bargain
during Fiver Friday starting this week and running
on the last Friday of every month.
He said all 44
businesses will have a bargain for five euro. Some
will offer a discount on a service for a Fiver while
others will have sale items for a Fiver. Most of the
44 businesses will run the offer all day while some
will have bargains available during a specific
period of time that day.
