It may be easy to head online and buy Christmas presents from a popular international brand, but it’s important that we don’t forget our local businesses that are the mainstay of our communities.
Every dollar spent in a local business returns many times that amount to the local economy through things like employee wages, rates and the purchase of goods and materials. Shopping locally also helps reduce the global carbon footprint, as fewer goods need to be transported.
Local businesses do a lot of good for the Bacchus Marsh area, by helping to support local schools, social services and not-for-profit organisations. That is why this festive season the team at Professionals Arbee Real Estate encourages everyone to buy locally and to help support the local businesses that help support our communities.
You might be surprised by the shops and services you can find if you take a look around the local area, and best of all you won’t have to travel too far to find them!
If you own a local business or know of a great one in the Bacchus Marsh area, then feel free to leave a comment and let us know!
