“I’d ask the people of Naas to support local shops. Many are sole traders and for some its they’ve put their life into it and their families also work there in many cases. It’s the life blood of the town. Naas was a lovely town until Superquinn closed and people started to shop elsewhere. In my shop we’ve had people coming from places like Kilcock, Enfield and Athy. Right now the town is losing people who’ve put a lot of work into their businesses. Your local shopkeepers need your continued support,” said Donal (66).
