Community members are invited to eat, shop and play local in the Glenelg Shire this August and secure their chance to win.
The Glenelg Shire Council is re-introducing the popular ‘Eat, Shop, Play Local’ competition to encourage residents to shop local during August, the recognised Small Business Month.
The competition offers entrants the chance to win a weekly $500 shopping voucher to the local business of their choosing by spending $20 at a local business in the Glenelg Shire.
Shoppers simply need to upload their receipt to the QR code to enter, which will be displayed at the register at local businesses. Alternatively, entrants can submit their receipts, with contact details written on the back, to any Glenelg Shire Customer Service Centre.
Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the competition formed part of Council’s initiatives during Small Business Month to recognise local traders and encourage local spending.
“This year has been tough for our local businesses with many forced to shut or alter their trade due to the coronavirus pandemic. Our small businesses need our local community to back them now more than ever,” she said.
“To help them on the road to recovery, Council is encouraging residents to shop local this August and have the chance to win a shopping voucher at the same time.
“The ‘Eat, Shop, Play Local’ competition is open Shire-wide – so I urge residents to enter from any local business they visit.”
