Buy Bundy Region and stay local to kickstart recovery

Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey visited Ace Hardware in Gin Gin to promote the “Buy Bundy Region” message. He's pictured with staff member Wendy Simpson and store owner Claire Reye.

Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey has thanked the community for supporting Council’s shop local campaign on social media.

Mayor Dempsey said “Buy Bundy Region” banners and photo frames were now common sights on Facebook.

“A lot of people were forced to go online for shopping during the lockdown,” he said.

“As things slowly get back to normal, we need to encourage local people to support local business and shop locally.

“It’s something we can all do to help with economic recovery. Buying in the Bundaberg Region keeps money circulating in the local economy and supports local employment. We all benefit from this.”

Mayor Dempsey visited Gin Gin this week to spread the word.

Wendy Simpson from Ace Hardware said she supports the campaign.

“As a business we keep people employed and we help people,” she said.

“A local business keeps everybody together.”

Mayor Dempsey said now that intrastate travel restrictions have been eased, he’s encouraging people to “stay local” as well.

“This will help tourism operators to start operating again,” he said.

“I encourage everyone in the Bundaberg Region to support our local tourism industry.

“Go to a local holiday park, spend a weekend in Woodgate, Gin Gin or Childers. Take a short holiday if you can and explore our beautiful Bundaberg Region.”
