Look For Local

New 'Look for Local' campaign urges consumers to support their local businesses

A new campaign by the Local Enterprise Offices, launched by the Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, is asking consumers to look local when they are shopping for products, services and experiences this Summer. The Look for Local campaign, supported by Enterprise Ireland and the Local Authorities, aims to raise awareness of the benefit of spending in your local area.

Research that was carried out as part of the first Look for Local campaign in November 2020 showed that Irish consumers were 83% more likely to look local for products and services in 2021. This campaign aims to strengthen that sentiment and to educate consumers on the domino effect that local spending has throughout their community. Every €10 spent locally on Irish products generates more than €40 of benefit to the local community in terms of employment*.

The campaign will run for across the Summer on media and profiling will continue until the end of the year to help spotlight local businesses across the country and encourage people to Look for Local. For more information on the campaign go to www.LocalEnterprise.ie/LookforLocal and agencies, businesses and consumers will also be encouraged to use #LookforLocal on social media to help support the campaign.

As part of the #LookForLocal in #Leitrim campaign we are running a series of Case studies on local businesses to tell us their stories and showcase their excellent Products & Services. If you have a business in Leitrim and would like to feature, contact us today!
