Newry and Armagh Alliance representative Jackie Coade has called for more support for city centre businesses in the constituency.
The Alliance representative said with a potential Covid 19 recession and Brexit on the horizon it is important local businesses and city centre management groups in the two cities were helped as much as possible.
“I encourage everyone to support local businesses within Newry and Armagh as we turn to the gradual opening of our manufacturing and retail businesses. Now more than ever retailers need your support,” she said.
“We need to encourage growth of Newry and Armagh city centres and support those businesses who have struggled during the lockdown. It’s going to be a tough road ahead for many, but with government initiatives and sharing knowledge and support, I hope we can get through this tough period ahead.
“I am happy to lend my support to all businesses within our constituency in any way I can.”
