Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is delighted to recognise the success of two local retailers in the Retail NI Irish News High Street Hero Awards. The High Street Heroes NI is a joint campaign from Retail NI and the Irish News supported by Camelot and Translink. It celebrates those exceptional independent business owners or employees who have gone above and beyond for their local high street. The campaign asked the public to vote online and choose their favourite independent retailer.
