She also thanked the members of the public who bought the vouchers and kept them on site for Christmas.

“This initiative was created to save money and protect local jobs in the local economy. The chamber plans to increase sales even further in 2023!”

He added that the vouchers can be redeemed at a wide range of stores, including 350 stores in the Dundalk area.

“The vouchers are now available in values ​​of €5, €10, €20 and €50. They make ideal gifts for birthdays, weddings, communions, confirmations, sweepstakes, farewells, and employee rewards all year round.

“The beauty of these coupons is that they don’t expire and stores get the full amount back. They don’t depreciate in value over time.”

Vouchers can be purchased at Grants, St, Michael Smyth’s. Francis St, Central News, Clanbrassil St, Centra Blackrock, Sheelans’, Riverstown, Finnegans, Louth Village, Flanagan’s Mace on Dublin Road. and Pats Gift Shop & Victory Centra in Dunleer, Valentines Centra in Carlingford and Lush, Barrys Shop Grange, Dundalk Credit Union Market St and The Ramparts.

“Two recent tax changes are worth noting,” Paddy said. “First, an employer can give a maximum of 1,000 euros in one year, and second, this can be split into two payments. So an employer could give 500 euros now and 500 euros in the summer holidays or on another special occasion to say thank you.”
