Complete our ‘Buy Local’ survey and win!

The City of Victor Harbor has launched an initiative that celebrates local businesses and highlights the benefits of buying local.

The ‘Buy Local’ initiative which originated from the Council’s Economic Development and Tourism Committee incorporates a consumer survey, awareness campaign and professional support for local businesses.

The awareness campaign and survey components commenced from Monday, 5 June 2017.

Community members are encouraged to take part in a short survey that will assist local businesses to learn more about consumer needs and expectations so that local offerings can better meet the needs of local consumers.

By completing the survey, participants will go in the running to win a tablet provided by Business Victor Harbor or one of 10 local shopping vouchers valued at $50.

“The ease of online shopping, coupled with greater access to large shopping centres south of Adelaide makes it easier for locals to shop outside the region,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp. 

“The aim of Council’s Buy Local initiative is to start conversations about the benefits of shopping locally. Our aim is to change behaviour so that ultimately we are seeing more retail dollars retained in our community.”

The Mayor said the development of the ‘Buy Local’ initiative has sparked some important discussions within the City of Victor Harbor.

“In line with the buy local initiative, the City of Victor Harbor will be reviewing its procurement policy to make it easier for local traders to do business with Council,” said Mayor Philp.

Business Victor Harbor Chair Nick Gormley applauded the Council for leading the important initiative.

“We need to ensure that local businesses are meeting the needs of local shoppers as the circulation of wealth within our community benefits everyone,” said Mr Gormley.
