We need to find the top ten best local businesses in the North West area - so choose your deserving finalist from our list of nominees.
Since these days it’s emails instead of letters, texts instead of phone calls and Skype instead of meeting in person, it’s no wonder we’re wanting more and more to get away from clumsy impersonal corporations and deal with local folk.
Local businesses mean our food’s fresher, our towns are more vibrant, and we’ve more influence over the cost and quality of what we buy. We know and trust them, they know and trust us, which makes for a happier place to live.
So who’s a prime asset to your neck of the woods? Tell us who deserves a place in our top ten?
To vote, post us the coupon in the Derry Journal dated Tuesday, October 6 or Tuesday, October 13 stating the full name, address and voting number of your favourite from the list. Closing date for votes is 10am, on Friday, October 23.
Please note, unfortunately we can’t accept any photocopied or defaced coupons; coupons delivered by hand or after the closing date.
