Think Local Buy Local

For several years now, promoting the ethos of "Think Local Buy Local" has been a consistent message. Many campaigns encourage shoppers to prioritise local businesses in their shopping choices. 

As a business owner, there are also a variety of programs in which you can actively participate each year.

We are excited to be launching another Think Local Buy Local Campaign to encourage shoppers to actively choose local for retail and service needs. 

The campaign will run as a consumer competition in June with $1000 worth of vouchers in the prize pool. Shoppers will be eligible to enter once they have spent a minimum of $10 in any local business.

Council will be procuring vouchers from local businesses. Businesses located in Whitehorse can participate by e-mailing an expression of interest to  Expressions of Interest close Friday 10 May 2024, 5pm.

The competition will be promoted to Whitehorse residents via social media and our other Whitehorse Council platforms. Participating businesses will get a shout out on Facebook and the opportunity to be featured on 'Be the Face of Your Place'
