#ShopLimerick – Shop, Eat, Stay, Spend and Enjoy Local in our wonderful City of Limerick


That is the message Limerick Traders wish to bring to you. Local traders are the heartbeat of Limerick City and the driving force behind Limericks economy. Like many other city’s Limerick traders have endured the worst year in living memory due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

The expectation is that retail will open for business on the 1st December. To get Limerick back on its feet we would ask the people of Limerick to Shop, Eat, Stay, Spend and Enjoy Local in our wonderful City of Limerick.
It is time for all of Limerick to come together and support local traders who play a big part in the landscape we enjoy today. Many of these traders have been operating for decades to serve the people of Limerick who must now rebuild their businesses, as many of them have been closed for several months of this year.
Limerick Traders message today is a simple one, spend local. Local traders depend on local trade to ensure they can continue to provide a service.
“Shops, restaurants, hotels, pubs and everybody in business throughout Limerick create local employment and we need all of these business’s to be able to stay open. While online shopping played a part during the COVID lockdown our appeal now is for Limerick people to think local and keep jobs local.
Sadly, Santa cannot come to our shops this year to say hello to all the wonderful children that normally visit him. However, great news, Santa has asked 12 local traders in the city to do a “Winter Wonderland Trail” of the journey of all the children’s letters to the North Pole in their windows.
