South Burnett businesses will be able to get a sneak preview of an exciting new “Shop Local” campaign soon … providing they’re willing to get up early.
South Burnett Directions will be hosting a series of business breakfasts next week in Wondai, Murgon, Blackbutt, Nanango and Kingaroy.
The breakfasts will celebrate Small Business Week as well as preview two new sales promotions for local businesses that South Burnett Directions plan to roll out later this year.
One of these, a “Shop Local” campaign the group plan to run from September to February, will make use of mobile phone technology to track shoppers and reward them for buying from participating local businesses.
South Burnett Directions believe the promotion will not interfere with existing sales promotions run in Murgon, Wondai and Nanango over the festive season, and can instead be added to them.
A second program aims to improve visitor experiences in local businesses.
It will be modelled on a very successful “Tourism Ambassador” program run in Wondai in December 2013.
The breakfasts will be held from 6:30am to 8:30am at the following locations:
All breakfasts cost $15 per head, and for catering purposes an RSVP is essential.
They can be made by phoning Sharyn Garrett at South Burnett Directions on (07) 4189-9173 or by emailing her.
