About Shop Local, Support Local

Times are tough for small business, especially the retail sector. The impact of the drought is making consumers cautious and then small business have to compete with online shopping, noting that in recent times we have seen online giant Amazon launch in Australia and Australia Post introduced Shipster, offering FREE shipping on eligible purchases at more than 50 of Australia’s biggest online stores.

But local retailers can offer one thing that online shopping can’t…great, personal customer service! Little touches like gift wrapping and going the extra mile for customers before, during and after purchase, really does go a long way. That’s why we need to shop local, support to strengthen the local economy and build a stronger community.
