Get on board with Love Local Gift Cards

There’s little doubt this year has been a tough one for our wonderful community and of course our local business owners. To show our support, Council launched the Love Local Gift Cards initiative in November 2019 to give residents of the Moree Plains, along with their friends and families, an easy way to shop local.

How does it work?

The Love Local Gift Cards work like an ordinary EFTPOS card, which can be redeemed in businesses within the Moree Plains Shire that have signed up to be part of the program. The good news is the program is being run at zero cost to businesses with Council covering participating store setup, advertising and promotional costs.

One of the great benefits of the cards is that they can only be redeemed in the Moree Plains Shire, which means it’s not only the recipient who benefits, but also the local business owner who is employing local people and supporting our local economy.

Are you part of the Love Local program?

We’ve witnessed a huge surge in support of regional businesses initiated by national programs such as the Buy from the Bush and the Buy Regional programsWith less than 21 weeks to go until Christmas, now is the perfect time to sign up to be part of the Love Local program to benefit from the pre-Christmas shopping rush.

Council encourages all local businesses to become a participant in the program which already has close to 100 participating stores across the Moree Plains Shire, including businesses in Moree, Mungindi and Pallamallawa.

Don’t miss out

Joining the program now means your business will be included in our new print and digital materials as part of our pre-Christmas advertising campaign.
