Narrabri Shire shoppers will have the chance to share in $7000 of prizes after The Courier and Wee Waa News ‘It’s Time to Invest in the Best – Shop in our Shire’ Christmas promotion officially started on Monday.

This year’s initiative features 21 outlets from Narrabri, Boggabri and Wee Waa.

The prizes will be in the form of shopping vouchers to be spent at participating stores and in cash for businesses which sell winning tickets.

As added incentives for the participating businesses, new artwork will feature on the billboard at the Paradise Fresh/Thai Home car park on Dangar Street, to encourage shire residents to shop locally this Christmas.

Community radio station 2MaxFM will be broadcasting the benefits of shopping with the participating businesses.

The Courier’s manager Wanda Dunnet said it was more important than ever to shop locally in Narrabri Shire after local businesses had suffered due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.

“Everything we could possibly need is right here in Narrabri Shire, and The Courier encourages people to look to our local businesses when it comes to Christmas shopping,” she said.

“While the Christmas promotion is primarily targeted at festive shopping, it’s important to remember that supporting our shire businesses should happen all year.”

The businesses participating in the promotion and the competition’s details are featured below.
