It’s never been more important to support our local businesses, local economy, and local music shops. The lifeblood of this country is small, independent businesses and traders who make our main streets worth visiting, go that extra mile for good customer service, and ultimately keep our country running.
We’re proud to support local, independent businesses with whom we work day in, day out to help keep the Irish music industry alive. With the country still recovering from COVID, and footfall in towns and cities across the country that support is more important than ever.
Without small record shops in towns up and down the country, and without small businesses our society would be a poorer place.
