Shop local and win!

24/09/2020

People are being urged to Shop Local as part of a 12 week campaign which kicks off on 4 October. Customers who choose to Shop Local can enter a weekly prize draw to win a $100 gift voucher which can be spent at a selection of local businesses.

The Shop Local competition encourages residents to spend money within the Georges River LGA, to help drive local economic recovery.

The Georges River community is facing huge challenges due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses in particular have been heavily impacted through reduced trade, temporary closures, staffing issues, and supply chain interruptions.

The Council’s Economic and Social Recovery Program found that 93% of sampled local businesses have suffered a decrease in income. It’s hoped the Shop Local campaign will persuade more people to put their money into local businesses.

Council recently did a call-out to local businesses to purchase the gift vouchers which will be used as prizes. 

Entering the competition is easy – entrants simply need to spend over $30 in one transaction at any local business and upload their receipts as proof of purchase via our Your Say website.  

A random prize draw will take place each week for 12 weeks, and each winning entry will receive a $100 gift voucher.  

Entrants are allowed one entry for every receipt valued at $30.00 or more, and the local business that attracts the most entries over the course of the campaign will be awarded an EFTPOS gift card valued at $400. So Shop Local, and support the small business community here in the Georges River area!

On submission entrants will also be asked to complete a short survey to assist Council with its post COVID-19 recovery and planning.

Head to https://yoursay.georgesriver.nsw.gov.au/ to lodge your receipts from 4 October 2020.
