The Sinn Féin MLA said, “This weekend sees the long-awaited reopening of the retail sector and slight relaxations for the hospitality industry.

 

 

“The arrival of Covid 19 on this island in March last year has had a devastating impact on so many of our local businesses.

“And the extent of this is something we could never have foreseen.”

She continued, “However, we have all become acutely aware of the importance of our local businesses, in providing employment and enriching our city, which plays a vital role in attracting people to come to visit, shop and stay in Newry.

“Over the last year, local businesses have also stepped up to the plate by supporting our healthcare staff and the wider community in ways that we should never forget, throughout this pandemic.

“With that said, as those same businesses prepare to reopen their doors they are depending on all of us to help them to get through what has been an extremely challenging year.

“And I would therefore encourage people to show our support for and shop local as we move forward.”

 

 

The MLA added, “We are very lucky in our city to have such a diverse and vibrant range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

“And we want to see that grow and develop as much as possible, particularly as we see the exciting projects planned for Newry including the City Park, Theatre and other schemes.”

Liz added, “I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of those businesses the very best for reopening.

“And I too look forward to getting back out and about in our great city.”
