We’ve been scheming and plotting for months now, trying to get all of Greystones’ beautiful, smart and sexy businesses to let us know their special offers.

The idea being that, having all the town’s bargains in one bin will make life a whole lot easier for us tight-fisted Greystonians.

Who knows, it may even tempt us away from the internet. And Dundrum.

Naturally, being Greystones, it’s proven pretty darn impossible to get all our shop owners to get their sales acts together, so, we reckon the best thing to do is simply get the ball rolling with what we do have. In the hope that the others will eventually cop on and catch up

Here are this week’s Greytones specials…

The bould Fiona Roche has just welcomed the fancy-pants L’Occitane into her Blacklion pharmacy, and to celebrate, when you buy any of their shampoos, you’ll get a free 75ml bottle of conditioner thrown in. Agréable!
