Shop local this Christmas and be in to win
In the lead-up to Christmas, Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt is encouraging residents to back small business and shop local.
“The holiday season is when many small businesses work their hardest and employ more locals to meet the demands of the Christmas retail trade period,” Mr Pitt said.
“It is important we back our small businesses which are the engine room of our economy and we can do this by shopping local this holiday season.
“You can find something special and truly unique locally for family, friends and loved ones to enjoy and Hinkler has wonderful small businesses offering an abundance of choice.
“Christmas is a vital injection of cash and confidence boost for our community, and it is a chance to help our small businesses employ more local people and keep money flowing around our local economy.
“There are also plenty of places to explore right here in Hinkler, so get out there and see what’s on offer. Then go and tell as many people as possible, so they want to come and visit,” Mr Pitt said.
As part of the shop local campaign, Mr Pitt is giving locals the chance to win one of 12 Christmas hams.
“It’s great to have the support of three local butchers in this shop local campaign: Zac’s Meats in Bundaberg, Whale City Butchery and Meats in Hervey Bay and Bucks Butchers Shoppe in Childers.”
