Try tradies to win

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

GAZETTE read­ers who sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses are be­ing given the chance to win a $200 cash prize in the ‘‘Try Our Tradies and Win’’ pro­mo­tion.

Read­ers who have at least $200 of work done by a busi­ness listed in the trades and ser­vices di­rec­tory of the Gazette sim­ply need to fill out the coupon, post or drop it into the Gazette of­fice and pro­vide proof of pay­ment for ser­vices to be el­i­gi­ble to win.

Gazette man­ag­ing ed­i­tor Greg McLean said it was a great way to re­ward read­ers for sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­nesses.

‘‘ There’s so many ex­cel­lent small busi­nesses in our com­mu­nity and this is just our way of help­ing pro­mote what they do,’’ he said.

‘‘For the lucky win­ners it might mean they can af­ford to get some­thing else done around the house or fix up their car.’’

One lucky win­ner will be drawn ev­ery month for the $200 monthly prize.

Port Dou­glas Au­to­mo­tive owner Bren­dan Wynne said the pro­mo­tion is a fan­tas­tic idea.

‘‘It is im­por­tant for us all to sup­port the lo­cal busi­nesses,’’ he said.

‘‘It keeps money in the town and peo­ple em­ployed if we all sup­port each other. I have a really great lo­cal cus­tomer base and this pro­mo­tion is a great way for them to get some­thing back.’’
