Parkes Shire Council and the Parkes Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to deliver the annual Christmas Shop Parkes campaign.
Running right up until Christmas, the campaign will focus on the diverse retail and service offerings of the Parkes Shire, and the benefits that shopping local has on our community, especially following years of drought and now COVID-19.
The campaign call to action is to ‘Give the community a gift this Christmas and shop local.’ A campaign page has been established on the VisitParkes website, and will be the go to hub for a plethora of gifting ideas from local stores throughout Parkes Shire. Be sure to head on over to the Shop Parkes Facebook and Instagram pages, where you can share your creative gift ideas and be in with a chance to win a share in $1000 worth of Shop Parkes Gift Cards.
The Shop Parkes Gift Card is the perfect gift for someone special this Christmas. As little as $1 to as much as $1000 can be loaded onto a single gift card, which is valid for 3 years and can be spent in multiple transactions across the 80 participating stores in Parkes Shire.
It’s not too late to get your business involved. Participating is absolutely free. Since the program’s launch in December 2018, over $270,000 has been loaded to the gift cards and $168,000 has been redeemed at local stores within the Parkes Shire.
