"Every shop in town battling against the likes of Amazon and iTunes for your spend on Christmas presents." - except SuperMacs, McCarthys (Bar & Rest), Main St Chinese, Mulroys, Rowlands, the Humbert (sigh!).
I think in these frugal times people will be more likely to be turning to the ebay's and donedeal's of this world.
Besides there's nothing from stopping any of the local businesses from opening up a online presence too - struggling with footfall? Open up a shop on e-bay! Excess inventory - sell it at knockdown prices on Donedeal!
How many retail businesses in Castlebar are on Facebook, Twitter or ever offer a bargain through Pigsback or GroupOn, etc.?
