This holiday, when you're doing your shopping - think where you can shop locally first. Your dollar goes further when spent locally, and makes a huge difference to our local shops, sports teams, and charities.

The shop local campaigns couldn't be possible without our local partners!

Your dollar goes further when you shop locally. 

Look local first when you're doing your shopping, whether it's for gifts, necessities, or treating yourself to a spa day or coffee! Not only do you support your neighbours when you shop local, your dollar goes a lot further for your own community when you spend it in your own town. Independent businesses recirculate revenues locally up to 4.6 times more than multinational companies do—for every $100 spent, local businesses spend $63 of that again locally, compared to $14. Similarly, there are more jobs/sq ft, more local spending on other local businesses, and more local charity contributions from independent businesses than multinational companies. Wow, our local businesses sure do more than we think!

To support our local businesses, we run a program called Love Terrace that creates a presence and brand for independently owned businesses to help locals and visitors quickly find the local gems of our community. We also partner with local agencies and industry in town to run local shopping campaigns that reward you for shopping local—check them out below!
