• Shop Local competition

Think local for your Christmas shopping this year

You could win thousands of dollars just by shopping locally this Christmas.

The Collie Chamber of Commerce is set to launch the annual Shop Local competition that invites businesses to contribute to a prize pool and advertising encouraging local shoppers to keep their dollars in town this Christmas.

Fill in an entry form for each eligible purchase, and you and that business each have a chance to win big.

Last year’s competition winner won $4000 worth of Chamber vouchers that could only be spent in participating businesses. The business where the winning ticket was sold also won their choice of a $3000 radio advertising package or a digital health check and a $1500 advertising voucher.

More than $2.5m was spent in town during 2015’s Shop Local competition. It is hoped that this year’s competition will garner 50 businesses, resulting in a massive $5000 prize.

The competition will be promoted on Hit FM Southwest, Triple MMM Collie and Triple MMM Bunbury with some cross-overs during the breakfast program. The winner will be drawn live on breakfast with Blackers via a live read.

Contact the Collie Chamber of Commerce to find out more or to register as a participating business.
