BELIEVE it or not, it’s Shop Local time already!
The Council is reminding all business houses that the popular annual promotion started this week, and retailers need to display their Shop Local poster now so customers are aware of the participating businesses.
The posters will also ensure that local shoppers are aware of their chance to win a slice of $1800 total prize money in Bombala cash!
Customers get one spending spree entry when they spend over $10 in a participating business, and then receive a further spending spree entry for every $100 (customers may elect to use their receipts instead).
Simply place your entries in the box provided at that business, and the winners will once again be drawn out at the Street Carnival in December.
This time around first prize will be $800, second $500, third $300, fourth $100, and fifth place is worth $100.
The 2013 Street Carnival will start at 6pm on Thursday, December 12, with an even bigger event being offered this year, including a street procession, musicians, rides, stalls and dodgem cars.
Meanwhile, Shop Local and Street Carnival organisers greatly appreciate all that our local businesses have contributed and donated towards the promotion and event.
“Without their support the Shop Local and Street Carnival could not happen,” Bombala Council’s Steve Rickett said.
“I encourage the community to support all those that have made this possible for the town.”
A full list to acknowledge all participating businesses will appear in a coming Bombala Times.
