Lo­cal busi­nesses beef up their shop win­dows across Rock­hamp­ton

The Morning Bulletin - - NEWS -

VIS­I­TORS to the re­gion for Beef Aus­tralia didn’t just head to the Rock­hamp­ton show­grounds while they were here.

They also headed around town, din­ing at var­i­ous eat­ing es­tab­lish­ments, fu­elling up at the ser­vice sta­tions and shop­ping lo­cally.

Stock­land Rock­hamp­ton cen­tre man­ager An­drew Provan said it was a great week as over 120,000 shop­pers headed to the cen­tre. The Beef Aus­tralia Win­dow Dis­play com­pe­ti­tion was also re-launched this year.

“We saw a lot of ex­cite­ment dur­ing Beef Week this year with both re­tail­ers and the lo­cal com­mu­nity get­ting into the spirit at Stock­land Rock­hamp­ton and across the re­gion,” he said. “Cus­tomers were also treated to fash­ion pa­rades and goody bags along with a com­pli­men­tary shut­tle bus to help them get to and from the lo­cal show­grounds.”
