The Friendly Bay Islander is again going inject a bit of fun into buying local and supporting local business with our Buy Island Local promotion.
We introduced the program last year and we are going again with a SHOP and WIN promotion designed to boost island business.
And by supporting participating businesses, you will have a chance to win $1000 Cash for Christmas and heaps of other prizes.
Our 'Buy Local Support Island Business' is to make locals more aware of what is available locally and will run in our September, October, November and December editions.
Every local business which advertisers in The Friendly Bay Islander can be part of the campaign.
Each participating store and business will display the special promotional signs.
