Joe Duffy is bringing back the Festive Fiver Friday this year in a bid to get people to spend more money locally.
The campaign, part of RTÉ Radio 1’s Liveline programme, asks people to spend an extra €5 with a local business, retailer or supplier in an effort to boost turnover and save jobs. Businesses were invited to offer a Fiver Friday deal of their choice to encourage customers to spend their money locally. From a small idea grew a big campaign, with hundreds of businesses getting on board.
Following the success of the original Fiver Friday, and with Christmas approaching, the Liveline team are inviting businesses across Ireland to get involved with Fiver Friday, which will take place on Friday 4 December 2015.
Presenter Joe Duffy said: “The idea is simple, local retailers get together to offer fiver Friday specials on December 4th , Liveline promotes it and encourages shoppers to spend an extra fiver in a festive atmosphere.”
Updates are being provided during the programme this week.
