Buy Local Day seeks support

It’s time to get behind your local business

They are the face and beating heart of the Sunshine Coast, helping our region grow and prosper, and now it’s time to celebrate our businesses – as part of the region’s first ever Buy Local Day.
It will be held on Saturday June 22, and Sunshine Coast Council, in collaboration with Buy Local Sunshine Coast is calling on all local businesses and consumers to take part.
The campaign is being held in late June to allow almost two months of lead time to build awareness within the business community and with consumers.
The Buy Local Day campaign began on May 1 and runs through to June 22.
The Buy Local Day initiative is being delivered by council with $30,000 in funding provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements through the Locally Led Economic Recovery Program.
The Local Economic Recovery (LER) Program aims to support projects that contribute to local and regional economic and social recovery.
A council spokesperson said the aim of the campaign was to reach a minimum of 10,000 businesses and consumers.
“This will be measured through social media engagement and advertising analytics, as well as engagement through Chambers of Commerce and Industry Group memberships,” the spokesperson said.
