East Antrim retailers in contention for industry accolades

Two east Antrim businesses are in the running for accolades in the High Street Heroes awards.

Shoppers and customers voted for their favourite convenience store, deli, butcher, off-licence or coffee shop, along with the coveted High Street of the Year.

Aroma Coffee House, Larne, has been named as a finalist in the best coffee shop category with Spar Glenarm being shortlisted in the best forecourt/petrol station category.

Congratulating the local businesses, Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Ald Noel Williams, said: “This campaign is the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate the brilliant work of independent retailers and the pride they bring to local communities.
