Assuming all continues on as it has been going, Boroondara City Council will launch its Thanks Boroondara campaign at the start of February through til 21 March.
The campaign will consist of real estate boards, pavement decals at 13 train stations, promotional literature and social media featuring traders thanking residents for choosing to shop local.
Personal thankers will be at Greythorn Central on Saturday 27 February from 9.30am-11.30am. They will be thanking our wonderful shoppers for choosing to shop local, handing you a thank you gift of seed sticks and also, letting people know about the competition (see below). Greythorn also plans to conduct its own promotion which we hope to get under way soon with printing of giveaway vouchers.
Boroondara City Council will run an online competition for the entirety of this Thanks Boroondara promotion period, allowing people to enter every time they shop at an independent Boroondara business.
Shoppers are encouraged to upload a picture of your receipt and enter a few details. Every week, for five weeks, Boroondara City Council will draw 10 x $50 vouchers from all the entries. Winners will be able the choose their favourite independent Boroondara business where they would like to use the voucher.
At the end of the campaign, two major prizes worth approximately $3000 each consisting of a full day out in Boroondara for two adults and a full day out for a family. It will consist of breakfast in one council area, shopping in another, lunch in another and so forth – so winners will experience the whole of what Boroondara has to offer.
