After the year we’ve had, it’s important to remember that many businesses in Hume City are managed by small families who employ local people. These businesses make up an important part of our community and local economy! Here’s five reasons why you should keep it local this Christmas:

  1. You will be supporting your local economy

    Many businesses in Hume City are managed by small families and employ local people. Money spent locally = more local jobs!

  2. Access to products and produce direct

  3. It’s better for the environment

    Shopping locally means less time spent travelling and more time celebrating! This is great for your social life, and the environment if you’re not driving as much.

  4. It feels good

    When you shop with a small business, you are building a relationship that often extends beyond that of “just a customer”. These social interactions allow for a positive and personalised shopping experience.
