Shopping local pays big this Christmas
Four lucky locals have been rewarded for their commitment to supporting local businesses this year, each winning $500 worth of vouchers through The Express Newspaper’s annual Christmas Vouchers Giveaway.
Each year The Express Newspaper teams up with 40 local businesses and the Mareeba Chamber of Commerce to encourage residents to shop local.
When shopping at participating businesses over the past month, locals received a ticket that went into the draw to win one of four $500 voucher packs to spend back in participating stores.
This year’s winners were John Morris, who shopped at Claude Cater’s Mensland Mareeba, Julie Gillman, who entered at the Mareeba Leagues Club, Larissa Smith, from shopping at Far North Office Choice and Deb Falla, who got her winning ticket at the Atherton International Club.
Participating businesses, TCB Landscaping and Tablelands Tire Centre, also won big after being drawn out of the hat to win a free advertising package with The Express in the new year.
