Shop­ping trip boosts Air­lie, Proser­pine busi­nesses

Daily Mercury - - BETTER BUSINESS NEWS -

THE past seven months have been a chal­lenge for busi­nesses in Proser­pine and Air­lie Beach, who have both en­dured set­backs since Cy­clone Deb­bie made land­fall ear­lier in the year.

Though with true Queens­land spirit, busi­nesses have bat­tled through and have slowly re­opened their doors.

Hel­loworld Travel Mackay and Mt Pleas­ant has of­fered an Air­lie Beach Shop­ping Day Trip over the last four years that co­in­cides with prepa­ra­tions for Christ­mas.

Kelly Portelli from Hel­loworld Travel Mackay said: “When I learnt of the de­struc­tion Cy­clone Deb­bie had on the lo­cal com­mu­nity I just wanted to do some­thing”.

“At the time we had to can­cel a cou­ple of trips up to Proser­pine & Air­lie Beach as busi­nesses were just not ready,” she said. “But now I am happy to re­port most are back up and run­ning and once again we can of­fer the ul­ti­mate Whitsunday shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence and make these shops shine within the com­mu­nity by mak­ing lo­cals aware they are open for busi­ness.”

The shop­ping day trip will de­part Mackay this Satur­day. For more info call Hel­loworld Travel Mackay on 4969 3600 or Mt Pleas­ant 4942 1444.
