Over the coming week’s we will be introducing our customers to Phlok. Collect Phlok points by checking in & purchasing goods at participating Sligo businesses & use them to pay for your purchases at Liber.
All you need to get started is a smartphone & the Phlok app.
We are hugely excited by this venture and it is a great initiative to encourage customers to shop local & to save money!
We will be rolling this out in association with other Sligo businesses over the next month and with your help it could make shopping local an exciting prospect.

When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:
Spend €100 at a local and €68 of that stays in your community.
Spend the same €100 at a national chain, and your community only sees €43.
Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbours.
More of your taxes are reinvested in your community–where they belong.
Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community
