Ballymena has changed lots over the years. Just take a look at this throwback Thursday picture from the Old Photos of Ballymena Facebook Page. The picture shows the train station and Galgorm road leading up into town. The Train Station is still there today however lots of things around it have changed.

Ballymena - Throwback Thursday

Ballymena – Throwback Thursday

Towns and cities change. In Ballymena we have seen our town transform from a farming market town to a busy shopping town. Our needs as consumers have changed and with that local businesses have sprung up and battled through the hard years to stand the test of time.

We at Ballymena Today spend lots of time thinking about and writing about our town. During that time we have met with lots of business owners, and people who work here in Ballymena. We are glad that most of them love Ballymena as much as we do. Everyday as they open their business up to serve you, we want them to know that we are behind them, encouraging and supporting them. That is exactly why we write.
