Mt Morgan businesses spread buy local message

Working together and shopping locally.

Mount Morgan businesses have rallied behind the 2022 Buy Local promotion organised by Mount Morgan Promotion and Development Inc [MMPAD], which started on 3 October and ends on 15 December 2022.

Thirty Mount Morgan businesses are participating in this year’s promotion which offers a total prize pool of $3000, comprising of vouchers which can be redeemed at any participating business in Mount Morgan and specific store vouchers.

MMPAD President, John Steinberger said he was happy with the final prize pool.

“There is little doubt that 2022 has been a tough year for many and it’s pleasing to see the local businesses get behind this promotion,” he said.

He said MMPAD was happy that Rockhampton Regional Council’s economic development arm, Advance Rockhampton has come on board again this year.

“While it’s obvious that the winners of the prizes will benefit from the Buy Local, MMPAD is hoping the businesses will have an increased turnover throughout this promotion – that’s the real focus,” Mr Steinberger said.

Cash and voucher donations were received from Collectables and Memories, the Grand Hotel, IGA Mount Morgan, Mane Street Hair Studio, Mount Morgan Promotion and Development Inc, Railway Hotel/Motel, Rainbow Café, Stephen Andrew – Member for Mirani, That Truck and Bobcat Bloke, the Print Cartel and Wattle Bee Next.

“This is a great gesture from these businesses and allows us to increase the original prize pool considerably,” Mr Steinberger said.

“With Christmas just around the corner, there is plenty of opportunity for not only Mount Morgan residents, but anyone who shops in Mount Morgan to receive some serious voucher prizes.”

Shoppers can enter by spending $20 or more in a single shop at any of the participating businesses, writing their name and telephone number on the back of the docket and placing the docket in the box provided at any participating store.

They have until close of business Wednesday, 14 December to enter. The draw will take place on Friday, 16 December 2022 at the Mount Morgan Twilight Christmas Concert.
