Naas Groups Launch Naas Gift Card Scheme

Naas Volunteer groups have joined forces with the me2you gift card Company to create a Naas Gift Card. The partnership with a provincial town is the first of it’s kind in Ireland for me2you. Naas is showing itself as a town to be ahead of the game.

Check out the list of participating Retailers  and our Facebook page

The me2you company was decided on as the partner of choice for the Naas gift card because at a preferential commission rate, it represents the fairest deal for Naas retailers of all available gift cards.

For shoppers, the Naas me2you gift card offers an unrivalled choice of everything from everyday essentials to luxury products and services including grocery, pharmacy, restaurants,  ladies and mens fashion, opticians, hair, beauty, photography, homeware, books, stationery and more.

The Naas me2you gift cards range in value from €15 to €500 and are available to purchase now from a selection of convenient locations including Barker & Jones,  Maxol Dublin Road, Swans on the Green, Rushes SuperValu and Cross Centra Hazelmere.

With the Naas me2you gift card an employer can reward or give members of staff either a single or multiple cards within a given year tax free as long as the total bonus does not exceed €500. Employers can purchase cards either directly in large numbers from the me2you gift card company (01-5542000) or cards are available in small self register packs from the aforementioned selected Payzone outlets in Naas.

The Naas me2you gift card initiative is being driven by Robin Skelton from the Naas Regeneration Group, Alice Fennelly from the EU URBACT Naas Retail Development Group and a number of other volunteers. The initiative is supported financially by EU URBACT, Kildare County Council and Kildare Chamber.

The Naas me2you gift card scheme is a wonderful opportunity for the town of Naas. It along with

1/the recent news of the new supermarket tenant in the old Superquin site

2/ the approval of a large extension at Lawlors Hotel

3/ major investment into Public Realm improvements and

4/the construction of new housing and schools

will help Naas meet the demands its growing population requires.

The launch of the Naas me2you gift card which took place on Friday 10th November at 6.30pm at the Naas Town Hall was attended by Mayor Robbie Power, participating Retailers, County Council Officials, Kildare Chamber, The Naas Regeneration Group and the EU URBACT Town Team. The evening began with a photocall and refreshments reception followed by a briefing on gift card logistics, advertising and promotional activities, Q & A session and the collection of the starter pack for each business participating in the scheme.

Alice Fennelly from the EU URBACT Naas Retail Development Group said ‘We are delighted to get this scheme off the ground. This initiative helps highlight the calibre and choice of retail and restaurants in Naas. The term ‘NAAS WORKING TOGETHER’ really describes how well all the various parties have all come together on this project to secure the prosperity and vibrancy of our lovely town. The Naas Gift Card is truly WIN WIN for all concerned.’

Robin Skelton from the Naas Regeneration Group commented at the launch ‘This is one more step towards establishing Naas as the shopping experience we know it can be. Our main objective now is to get as many Naas me2you gift cards circulating as possible. We are urging local employers to switch from other gift cards to the Naas me2you gift card and for the public to choose the Naas me2you gift card for friends and family this Christmas.
