Shop at home

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
