Did you know that Australia is home to over 3.5 million small businesses?
Just like this one here, the Warragul Flower Shop.
Small businesses play a big role in Gippsland – they’re the backbone of our country towns.
It’s small business that keeps our economy and communities thriving.
That’s why it’s so important to support the businesses who help make Monash such a prosperous place to live, work and visit.
When you shop local, you support locals.
Whether it’s buying fresh produce from your local farmer’s market, a visit to your community pharmacy, or specialised handmade goods from a small business near you.
Showing your support is so important – either purchasing directly from the store or online, or even giving them a ‘like’ on social media.
These successful businesses are proof that small steps make a huge difference.
So get out there, shop local, and see what your community has to offer.
That’s just as I see it.
