Cookstown’s Independent Retailers take centre stage to launch Cookstown Retail Week which takes place from Saturday, June 21 to Saturday, June 28.
The initiative is spearheaded by Cookstown District Council, and jointly supported by Cookstown Town Centre Forum and Cookstown Chamber of Commerce.
Retail Week aims to encourage consumers to ‘shop local’ and support independent retailers.
Cookstown Retail Week provides the perfect platform for independent retailers to showcase their unique retail assets. Many special offers will be available in participating stores from Saturday 21 June - Saturday 28 June 2014. Cookstown possesses an unrivalled variety of shopping including an exclusive range of family owned independent shops, that give the town’s retail offer a distinctive appearance along its famous mile-long street.
The formal launch of Cookstown Retail Week will take place on Saturday 21 June 2014 from 1pm – 4pm when the town’s retail core will come ‘alive’ with an array of street entertainment to amuse shoppers between the hours of 1.00pm and 4.00pm with a selection of face painters, balloon modellers, cartoon characters and maybe a few surprises! To add to the ambiance of the afternoon, Live Street Music will be showcased at various intervals as traders and families get into the swing of the Saturday street entertainment.
So why not come along with all the family and enjoy the town centre activities and benefit from the many special offers and discounts available from Independent Retail outlets. Full details of the event will be published in next week’s local press.
