Merry Christmas & Peaceful New Year!
Christmas has come round all too quickly this year, it does seem that we're all increasingly preoccupied by the daily grind of life in the shadow of Covid and the seemingly never ending variants. To this backdrop it's all too easy to lose sight of the important things in life; family, friends and community!
As a local family business, embedded in the local and wider community, that's never been more relevant. Ultimately that's all that truely matters and as the hectic run up to Christmas Eve comes to a close we're often left to reflect. We've soo ...
We should probably shout it a little louder but we this year celebrated our 65th Anniversary
! Established in 1956
by the late Noel and Evelyn Dalzell
the business today keeps going from strength to strength, perhaps all the more remarkable given the many changes in the last two decades with the advent of the internet and online shopping. Not also forgetting the last crazy 18 months of 'Lockdowns'
and restrictions to trade and personal freedoms that we've all endured.
No one knows what the future holds for us personally never mind for business (especially those on the high street) but one ...

We Have Reopened!
We have now fully reopened and we've shaved a wee bit of our normal opening times by shaving 30 minutes of our pre-lockdown hours

A Look Back Before 'Lockdown'
It seems like an eternity ago now but life before 'Lockdown' is a little less than just 3 month ago! Can you remember normality or is it just a wistful dream? Certainly the days and weeks leading up to March 23rd will be remembered as something of a chaotic, surreal blur for many of us. The fear, the unknowing and of course most importantly the suffering of those who contracted Covid-19/Coronavirus and the pain and worry of their loved ones and friends are all very much to the fore of thise memories. Sadly, many succumbed to the terror that befell the virus, not just in ...
Happy Birthday to you...

Established by Norman Alexander
and his good wife way back in 1954
in the towns 'Market House', the business is today a household name not just in County Armagh, but throughout Northern Ireland and indeed much of the Republic of Ireland. All of us in Markethill should be rightly proud and celebrating this fantastic family owned business that has done so much to put our small ...
