The high street retail sector has seen a sea-change in how business is conducted over the last decade.
In Balbriggan there are over 130 retailers, many of those are successful and well established. However, the Chamber recognises the challenges faced by all businesses, especially the high street retail sector. One of the biggest challenges to overturn this phenomenon lies in finding new ways to encourage people to ‘come into town’ again. With the economy finally turning the corner, there is already evidence in Balbriggan of an increase in business with six new or refurbished businesses opening their doors in the town centre over the past three months. Further openings are anticipated in the medium term.
Balbriggan has a range of shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, a 4 star hotel and other amenities & services. With commercial space available at affordable rents, new retail businesses continue to set up in the town.
