Buying local is the best way to support businesses on the Fraser Coast; it’s great for employment, communities, and the economy.  For every $100 spent locally, it provides up to $180 benefit to the local economy through the multiplier effect.

The Fraser Coast’s Open for Business – Buy Local initiative is focussed on encouraging the Fraser Coast community to think about and re-consider their purchasing habits for the benefit of our local economy and community. 

At the centre of this initiative is the Fraser Coast Gift Card, a unique and convenient gifting solution that works through the EFTPOS system at participating businesses. Our Council has partnered with Why Leave Town (WLT) Promotions who specialise in supporting local government entities and business chambers to support buy local strategies.

The Fraser Coast Gift Card makes a great gift for those who are hard to buy for, and it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving as every time one of the cards is purchased, the money stays local.

Fraser Proud is all about thinking local, buying local and supporting local on the Fraser Coast. We are proud to now accept the Fraser Coast Gift Card at our business. Spend your money locally and keep our economy growing.
