South Gippsland Shire Council update early October 2021
Local residents are being encouraged to shop local as part of a new marketing campaign called 'Shop Local South Gippsland'.
The campaign has been made possible by funding in the COVID-19 Community Support Package and aims to support local businesses by helping to promote Shop Local and Eat Local messaging. It is a reminder that these businesses are mostly owned and operated by local people who contribute to local schools, sporting clubs and community groups. By supporting local businesses, our whole community benefits.
The 'Shop Local' campaign features advertising, shop signage, posters, a social media campaign, and reusable bags featuring the Shop Local South Gippsland branding that will be available through many local businesses
It is hoped that this consistent messaging will become familiar with residents and be a friendly reminder to support our small, local businesses instead of online or in metro-based shopping centres. If you or someone you know would like to get involved in the campaign, get in touch with Council on 5662 9200. You can also find a list of businesses with take away or home delivery available by visiting shop local websites.
