Local traders get behind ‘Real Deal’ campaign

04 September 2017

Traders at the Walled City Market joined the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District, Councillor Maolíosa McHugh at the weekend to show their support for Council’s membership of the Real Deal campaign.

The initiative is a cross-sector scheme involving Local Authorities, Trading Standards, Market Operators and traders, which aims to combat the sale of fake goods and promote legal sellers and goods at local markets.

Damien Doherty, Chief Inspector of the Trading Standards Service, joined Mayor McHugh and Council’s Markets Officer Nicolle Walters, to sign the Real Deal Charter promoting law-abiding market activity providing benefits for customers, traders and communities and reducing opportunities for criminal activity.
