Putting the spotlight on buying local
SIMPLY THE BEST: Noelene Foster and Asha Mason of Suncoast Markets, Tweed Heads, showcasing some of the top local produce on offer when you buy local.
THE Tweed Border Mail is proud to be an integral part of our community and we are always looking for new ways to promote our local producers, retailers and businesses.
This week we launch our second Buy Local campaign, a six-week joint initiative between our advertising and editorial departments designed to put the spotlight on our fantastic local businesses.
Our first campaign was a huge success; the feedback from readers and advertisers tells us you want more Buy Local.
Through our Buy Local pages we will bring you stories of local businesses, the people behind them, how they came to be and how they support the community of which they are proudly a part.
We'll let you know about great local special offers and where you can get the best value while spending your hard-earned dollars locally. And, by shopping locally, readers have the chance to win!
Tweed Border Mail, the Daily News and Suncoast Wholesale Meats are calling on our readers to buy local for the chance to win $1000 worth of meat from Suncoast Wholesale Meats, plus a 180L Westinghouse stand-alone freezer.
By supporting your local retailers and businesses you can be in the running to win this great prize.
Tweed Border Mail editor Mikarla Marsden said she was thrilled with the last campaign and hoped this second phase would further connect local business owners and customers.
"There's never been a more important time to shop locally and keep our hard-earned dollars in town," Mrs Marsden said.
"As a local business, we're delighted to be joining with other Tweed businesses for this campaign."
