Regional Development Australia Central West is calling on local communities and visitors alike to shop local this October during NSW Small Business Month.

October is a month dedicated to shining a light on the fantastic small businesses which make the Central West such a great place to live, work and invest.

Mayor of Cowra Council, Bill West says the best way to support local business this October is to shop local and back local business owners with skin in the game.

“We are so lucky to have such a variety of unique shopping offerings in Cowra there is always a great bargain or buy on offer.

“Another vital way to support local traders is through the successful ‘Cowra Cash Card’ an easy way to get something special for friends and family and supporting local business in the process,” said Joran Core, President of the Cowra Business Chamber.

“The Cowra Cash Card is an important way of keeping more local dollars circulating in our town and within the region. Keeping more hard-earned dollars where it is needed most and driving a culture of buying local, and supporting local”.

RDA Central West CEO Sam Harma said every month should be small business month as they are the lifeblood of many communities across the Central West.

“Across the state there are over 760,000 small businesses, and every single one across the Central West employs, invests and drives opportunities in our local cities, towns and villages.

“I congratulate the NSW Government on this important initiative. This campaign continues to show off NSW as a small business friendly state, where it’s easier to start, grow and run a resilient small business, especially across the glorious Central West,” said Mr Harma.
