Designed to keep “Think Local, Shop Local” at the forefront of the publics mind, the card ensures that local spending stay local. With 0% commission to businesses and no sign-up fees it is the easiest way that you can support your local economy. The Love Drogheda GiftCard currently has over 175 businesses signed-up to accept it, covering everything from retail, restaurants and cafes to personal services and attractions.
The Love Drogheda Gift Card shop local gift card is one of the projects that has been at the top of the teams list since 2020. Since launching the gift card we have followed up the important message of “Shop Local, Shop Drogheda” with a series of social media posts and videos, highlighting the wide range of businesses available to the public and encouraging them to think local and shop local. We also launched a series of billboards repeating this message at entry points in the town.
Christmas Lighting a first priority. Christmas lights to be totally reformed and enhanced. Our town looks like a downtrodden poor relation to most other towns in Ireland when it comes to Christmas lights
Determined to add a bit of colour and cheer to the evenings in Drogheda the popular festoon lights along North and South Quays were installed by Love Drogheda BID in 2019 and remain lit throughout the year, though they feature well with the additional Christmas Lights when they get put up also. The festoon lighting was one of Love Drogheda BIDS first projects since getting voted in by rate-payers in 2019. Now a stand-out feature of our gorgeous waterfront, the festoon lights have been greeted with enthusiasm by the public and visitors to Drogheda alike.
