Shop at home
Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has urged people across her electorate to ‘think local and shop local’ as they prepare to celebrate the festive season.
“Small businesses are a major employment sector for our local area, providing not only jobs but an important input to the local economy,” she said. “Shopping locally creates jobs for our friends, our neighbours and our youth, so next time you are deciding where to shop, please look local first.”
Ms Kealy said local businesses not only offered great services and products, they also gave vital sponsorship to community sporting clubs, groups and schools.
“The festive season brings with it an array of shopping needs and I encourage everyone to shop locally to support our local traders,” she said.
