She said: “I’m delighted to launch the ‘Your Belfast Rewards’ app with some of the city centre retailers who will be taking part in this very rewarding initiative. They are among 200 local businesses who have signed up and will be providing a range of incentives and rewards each day in the run-up to Christmas for city centre shoppers and visitors to Belfast.
“People can download the app and be in with a chance to win hundreds of prizes – small and large – from a free cup of coffee to thousands of pounds worth of vouchers to spend in city centre stores.

A temporary walkway reconnecting Royal Avenue to Donegall Place is now open in the city centre and over the weekend Primark opened on Castle Street as well as department store Guineys in the former BHS premises on Castle Place. Argento, Spar, DV8, Skechers and McDonald’s are also now open again following temporary closure after the Bank Buildings fire.
