The ‘Independent’ idea is not a new concept for us at Armagh I, in fact, it has been two years in the making.
Back in 2018 we had the idea of creating a platform to help support our local independent businesses – the heartbeat of our community.
Our independent businesses are run by local people, a distinct personality to the community we live in and we want to champion that.
So, after many conversations, the Independent Card was born – a small credit-card sized item which offers some fantastic discounts in many of our brilliant independent stores across Co. Armagh and beyond.
Alongside our Independent Card, we have introduced our Independent store, an e-commerce platform aimed at helping local businesses – whether they were already selling online or not – offer their goods directly to local customers.
And for you the customer to avail of some fantastic local deals.
Some of the best deals are hiding in plain sight and by supporting local you are helping our high streets not only survive, but hopefully thrive in challenging times – all the while saving yourself some money.
