Love local? Shop local

Love local? Shop local

The silly season is fast approaching and with staff get-togethers and family gatherings packing out the time between now and then, why would you want to leave town?

Just six weeks separate us from Christmas and as that date moves closer it can be difficult to find the time to purchase gifts. 

Thankfully, Circular Head has once again provided the goods. We are lucky to live in an area littered with family owned businesses and boutique gift shops and all of them would love to hook you up with the perfect presents for your loved ones.

When you shop local, money you spend stays in the area and you can sleep easy knowing that your hard earned dollars are helping to make Christmas a little bit easier for the business you choose to support. 

We here at the Chronicle, we know the importance of shopping local and have dreamt up a promotion to help you get more bang for your buck. 

We’re giving away almost $2000 in prizes in the lead up to Christmas.

To be in the running all you have to do is spend $20 or more in any participating business, fill out an entry form and drop it into the marked box in store for your chance to win. 

At the end of the promotion one lucky customer will receive $1000 in vouchers to spend in participating stores, while two other local shoppers will take home minor prizes of $300 and $200 respectively.

But that’s not all. Every week until the final prizes are drawn on Monday December 16, we’re giving away $100 to spend locally, starting on Monday November 25.

With such a wide variety of goods available right at your doorstep, why would you ever leave town?

As a business owner there is still plenty of time to get involved. Contact Leanne Everett about a Shop Local advertising package on 6452 3333.

With Christmas fast approaching, don’t forget to support your local businesses this festive season.
