Shop lo­cal to win

Southern Riverina news - - FRONT PAGE -

There’s never been a bet­ter time to do your Christ­mas shop­ping right here in Fin­ley, thanks to the Fin­ley Christ­mas Shop­ping Bo­nanza.

The Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture pro­mo­tion — proudly sup­ported by the SOUTH­ERN RIVE­RINA NEWS — has been run­ning for one week, and its first win­ners were drawn on Mon­day.

Just for shop­ping lo­cally, Jenny Smith, Beris Str­elec and John Al­lan have each won a $100 voucher to be spent at par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses.

There’s an­other $1200 in vouch­ers to be won over com­ing weeks, with three $100 vouch­ers drawn each week.

The pro­mo­tion will cul­mi­nate with the ma­jor prize draw at the Xmas Xtrav­a­ganza on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22.

The owner of the drawn en­try au­to­mat­i­cally wins $250, but if they are at the event and can claim their prize within a set time limit their prize­money will dou­ble.

Fin­ley Cham­ber pres­i­dent Gary Carr said while the cham­ber re­wards those who shop lo­cal ev­ery year with the Shop­ping Bo­nanza, the cur­rent eco­nomic cli­mate makes sup­port­ing this year’s pro­mo­tion more im­por­tant.

‘‘The hard­ships of drought can have an af­fect on all lo­cal busi­ness, so now it’s vi­tal we sup­port Fin­ley busi­nesses,’’ Mr Carr said.

‘‘Fin­ley has a di­verse range of shops and the own­ers, man­agers and staff are al­ways willing to help you where they can.

‘‘Sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­ness plays an im­por­tant role in keep­ing the town strong, and in Fin­ley we know how to rally be­hind our busi­nesses.

‘‘It might only be mid-Novem­ber, but you should not leave it too late to do all of that Christ­mas shop­ping.’’
