THE number of independent stores in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh is an important strength for the area, according to shoppers and retailers in the town. The 'retailer views survey' revealed that the economic downturn has had an impact, with 57% of retailers anticipating lower profits due to a decline in the number of customers and thus sales. Shoppers polled said the town had a wide range of shops and goods to offer people from both sides of the border.
