PERFECT autumn weather provided the ideal backdrop to yesterday’s Shop local and save retail promotion.
SUCCESS: Runway Clothing & Accessories owner Gemma Franklin was busy in her shop on Thursday.
JOHN STREET: John Street was festooned with balloons yesterday as local retailers got into the swing of Shop Local and save day. Among the businesses to support the day was Redbournberry Clothing Co. Owner Rebecca Clark was very happy with the overall results in particular the swift trade in Ugg boots and slippers.People must be expecting some cold weather some day soon. Rebecca will be going on maternity leave in early June. Michelle Richards will be working full-time until she returns and Michelle will be ably assisted by Melissa Miller who will be working on a casual basis.
YUMMY: Gourmet Delights was busy yesterday with Lisa and Kelsie Dunn serving customers Monique Chalker, Ashlyn Chalker, Tiari Kelly and Jenny Oldham.
John Street and nearby malls were alive with activity as shoppers went in search of bargains and the opportunity to enter the lucky shopper $50 gift voucher from each of the eleven participating stores.
Proving its better to be active and promote your business rather than sit back and feel glum about the current economic situation retail owners told The Singleton Argus the day had been a success with extra shoppers in town.
The winners of the 11 gift vouchers will be contacted today by The Argus .
