Do your Christmas shopping where YOU matter

November 11, 2018

Packed shopping centres, long queues, the struggle to find parking, hours spent on the road and unnecessary extra costs are among the perils of travelling to larger centres to shop for Christmas.

ingara and Warialda both boast small, yet thriving business communities, with a number of mostly sole traders who can cater to most shoppers.

When you support locally owned businesses, you’re not only supporting the local economy and the employment of local people, you are also directly supporting your local sporting and community groups and local community in general, because it is the owners of these businesses who give back to the community.

Many studies indicate that shopping locally has major economic benefits for the local community. When you spend $100 at a local business, on average 58% more of your money stays in your community compared to what would have happened if you spent that $100 at multinational company based store.

By shopping in your local town, you are buying from people you know, many of them self-employed.
