Member for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan is encouraging Euroa residents to shop local.
Her comments come ahead of the Strathbogie Shire Business Dinner on Friday 5 August as part of the North East Small Business Festival.
Ms Ryan said Euroa had many outstanding and diverse businesses and it was important that locals made the most of the opportunity to buy in town, rather than online or elsewhere.
“Euroa’s main street is full of retail gems, quirky cafes and helpful businesses,” Ms Ryan said.
“From giftware, clothing and hair and beauty, to real estate, hardware and trades there is certainly every opportunity for people to buy local first before heading out of town.
“With the North East Small Business Festival in full swing, what better time is there to celebrate our local businesses and make a commitment to shopping locally.”
Ms Ryan congratulated Business Euroa (formerly Business Enterprise Euroa) for the work they were doing to promote Euroa's small businesses.
“Business Euroa provides excellent support and promotion for small business operators and staff in Euroa,” Ms Ryan said.
“It is important for the business community to feel connected and supported and Business Enterprise Euroa creates the perfect platform for this.”
Business Euroa President Gwenyth Bigger said part of Business Euroa’s mission was to promote a strong and sustainable business community within Euroa.
"Business Euroa encourages people to shop local in Euroa & District as it helps to provide jobs for local people and strengthens our economy,” Ms Bigger said.
“We all benefit where money spent remains within our community."
The 2016 Strathbogie Shire Business Dinner will take place this Friday at Fowles Wine, Avenel.
