Retail NI Welcomes New Covid-19 Support Schemes

Welcoming the two new Covid-19 support schemes, announced by the Economy Minister to assist high growth SMEs and help retailers to grow online sales, Retail NI Chief

Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Both schemes are welcome, and we would encourage applicable businesses to apply”

“There is no doubt that Covid-19 has hugely accelerated the demand for online sales and it is now essential that every retailer needs to sell or market their products online”

“Independent retailers, given their diversity and choice of products, need to be at the forefront of driving online sales and also shaping new and reimagined high streets as we begin the long recovery process”
