Buy Local, Shop Local Campaign

Local businesses play a vital role in sustaining and strengthening our community.

We are fortunate enough to have a wide range of local businesses, but they need your support more than ever as we move into the recovery phase of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The City has developed a campaign to support local businesses by encouraging everyone to shop local.

The campaign includes our online local business directory, street banners and a range of other promotional material for businesses to use and display to help create awareness and stimulate business.

It has been a challenging time for a lot of local businesses and we're excited to work closely with them during this tough time.

If you are a resident, please support our local businesses by buying local. Look out for the new Buy Local, Shop Local stickers in business windows around the City.
