We all know the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the face of retail – probably forever. But some things stay the same – the quality of the product, value for money, ease of access to it and ethical purchases. With only 100 days to Christmas, can I remind everyone thinking of choosing those special purchases to remember your local retailers, craftworkers and artists. Many of us have online shops on our websites, other people have gathered together to start virtual local shopping malls (well done iStreet)! All of us would really appreciate some of your buying power staying in Ireland – and preferably Waterford!!
So maybe take the pressure off yourselves; browse and buy online and feel good about supporting local people. A Euro spent here will bounce back into the community and benefit us all. And finally – a plug for ourselves here at Crobally Irish Soaps. A present of soap in these current circumstances is both luxurious and practical – Keep Washing Those Hands!
