Shop Local in South Perth this Christmas

Business news 13 November 2023
Buy local

The countdown to Christmas is on and there’s so much to do before the festivities begin! Luckily, you don't have to look further than your doorstep for all your food and present shopping.

Small business is the heartbeat of South Perth 

Remember, when you buy from local small businesses, you’re supporting the South Perth community, reducing your carbon footprint and helping create a strong local economy and workforce.
Here are just some of the ways you can show some love to your locals:
  • Make South Perth your first stop for food and present shopping 
  • Use the hashtag #ShopLocalSouthPerth to share your discoveries on social media
  • Host one of your Christmas catch-ups at a local café or restaurant
  • Follow local businesses on social media
  • Write an online review for your favourite spots
Even small shows of support can make a big difference to a small business. Did you know that if we all spent just $10 a month at local businesses, it would boost the state’s small business sector to the tune of $216 million each year?!
