The InStrabane gift cards have already proven the perfect Christmas gifts for not only families, but businesses as well.

Frylite have purchased 150 of the cards to present as a festive thank you to their hard-working staff.

The scheme, which is part of the Strabane Business Improvement District plan, is based around gift cards ranging in value from £5 to £200 which can be spent in over 70 local stores in the Strabane area.

The cards are ideal for family, friends or colleagues, while businesses, like Frylite, can also take advantage of the bulk buy discounts.

Sinead Lynch, Business Officer for Derry City and Strabane District Council, said that the card’s versatility is what makes it such a perfect option for both the general public and businesses.

“It’s brilliant to see Frylite supporting this gift card scheme. Not only does it massively help businesses in Strabane, but it’s also a great way for them to thank their staff this Christmas time.

“They aren’t just perfect festive gits, but can also be used by business owners as staff rewards or incentives, or as customer loyalty rewards.

“The cards are also ideal for anyone who is stuck for something to get a family member or friend, and with so many stores involved it means that they can use it for whatever they fancy – whether it’s beauty, retail, insurance providers, or even purchasing tyres.

“The wide variety is what makes this such a unique and useful gift at any time of the year, but particularly this Christmas, and it’s no surprise to see a big business like Frylite getting on board.

“As the time ticks closer to the big day, you can take the hassle and stress out of shopping by purchasing an InStrabane gift card.”

Eamon McCay, Managing Director of Frylite, said the company were delighted to support the gift card and give back to their staff.

“Our staff work so hard throughout the year that we wanted to find a way to say thank you.

“The InStrabane gift card was the perfect option for us because it allows us to accommodate all of our staff while also ensuring that we are helping fellow local businesses in Strabane by putting money back into the economy.

“Frylite are committed to the continued growth and success of Strabane, so we are delighted to be part of this initiative while also giving back to our hard-working staff.”
