Love Local in Moree this Christmas

Nearly 100 businesses across the Moree Plains Shire will participate in the new Love Local Moree Card program, launched this month by Moree Plains Shire Council, encouraging residents to shop locally this Christmas.

Love Local Moree Cards can be purchased online as well as at local “load-up stores” in Moree, Mungindi and Pallamallawa and can then be used multiple times at a variety of participating stores located in Moree and surrounding villages.

Mayor Katrina Humphries has praised the Love Local Moree Cards saying, “We are so proud to bring this initiative to the Plains. We know our retail and hospitality sectors are hurting and these cards are a unique way of providing some much needed sales for local businesses within and surrounding the Moree Plains.

“This unprecedented drought is taking a major toll on businesses and their families as well as our community at large. With Christmas quickly approaching, Love Local Moree Cards are a way for family and friends from afar to give a gift that gives many times over. There is not a lot of spare funds around for our local families; a Love Local Moree Card allows them to enjoy a little Christmas cheer but also supports our local businesses.” Cr. Humphries said.

“As nearly 100 businesses are participating, the gift cards shine a light on how many services and boutique stores we are fortunate to have operating within our Shire. I encourage local residents and their friends and families living outside of the Shire to purchase a Love Local Moree Card this Christmas and support the local businesses that have supported our community for years.”

Gift recipients will be able to spend their money on a wide variety of goods and services from Moree Plains Shire including adult and children’s fashion and footwear, gifts and homewares, art & framing, hair and beauty, cafe and dining, jewelry, fuel and groceries, car servicing and detailing, health and leisure, kitchen supplies and agriculture supplies, plus many more.

Council’s Acting Economic Development and Grants Manager Mrs. Susannah Pearse is enthusiastic about response from local businesses coming on-board, “There is no cost to businesses to participate, with Council funding the administrative costs to launch the initiative so local participating businesses will directly financially benefit from purchases through the Love Local Moree Card.”

The full list of the participating stores can be found on the Moree Plains Shire Council’s website.
