Galway SMEs urged to apply for new supports announced by An Post

An East Galway TD is urging Galway’s SME sector to avail of new supports announced by An Post which include a 25% discount on parcel services.

Minister Ciaran Cannon has said that the €2m package is most welcome in addition to the suite of Government supports already available to the business sector.

He commended and thanked An Post for ‘taking this major initiative to support our business sector at a time of immense financial pressure and uncertainty’.

The supports include discounted prices, starting with a 25% discount on An Post parcel services through the An Post Advantage card during the COVID-19 crisis.

A €1m marketing fund offering €1000 worth of Direct Mail is also included for a local advertising drive or as part of a larger marketing campaign.

This will be allocated on a first come-first service basis from Monday 25 May.

A dedicated eCommerce advice hub will provide information and expert tips for help SMEs to start trading online.

Through this, small businesses will have access to the best information and inspiration with links to the Local Enterprise Offices and other SME networks.

Minister Cannon said: “These may be accessed by registering for the An Post Advantage Card through anpost.com/commerce and post offices and this support is most welcome in addition to the suite of Government supports already available to our business sector.”
