Four Ballymena Businesses to support this Christmas

Action Man

Men can be so difficult to buy for unless they have a full on active hobby like cycling or running. If they are a real action man then here are three destinations which are all in the town centre.

Velo Culture

Velo Culture are on Greenvale Street and they are, in their own words, a bicycle boutique. They stock everything from the tools and technical pieces, helmets, clothing and even sunglasses. If you have a cyclist in the house then head in and pick up a stocking filler or even treat then to a new bike. If you don’t know what to get the staff are really helpful and if all else fails pick up a gift voucher. They are always well received! We love their range of watches which can track you cycling route and your progress or these Lazer sunnies.
