The GO LOCAL FIRST Campaign is urging Australian consumers to do their bit to help the economy recover by buying locally from small businesses in their community.

As a small business, you are a key part of your local community. Without you, Australia’s community spirit and economy would suffer.

This is why your support is critical to remind Australians to GO LOCAL FIRST for goods and services, because when small businesses thrive, local communities thrive.
