A dedicated website www.laoisgiftcard.ie detailing all participating stores and shops around the county selling the cards will be launched soon.

Laois Chamber encourages employers to buy the gift cards for their employees this Christmas. It says employees will see you care about the local economy and communities. It adds that employers will also show that they are supporting local spending and helping to save jobs and livelihoods hit be the pandemic.

Each employee can receive up to €500 tax free as voucher.

"If every adult was to spend €20 in small businesses each week over the next 3 months, this would amount to an injection of €875million into the local economy and will have a huge positive impact on jobs and the vibrancy of our towns and local communities," says Laois Chamber.
