NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has thrown his support – and hip pocket – behind an innovative project aimed at driving sales in Inverell businesses, purchasing the first Inverell & District Value Book.

 

Mr Marshall bought the first booklet from its developers Kim Kelleher (Blair Athol Estate), Jane Brookman (The Brew Shed) and Steve Johnson (Inverell Terrace Motor Lodge) with business leaders looking for new ways to encourage trade.

 

The Inverell & District Value Book contains more 200 vouchers from close to 100 local businesses, providing numerous two-for-one deals or discounts on products and services.

 

He said that with the drought impacting revenue in every business it’s great to see operators taking it on themselves to come up with new ways to increase sales.

 

“What has always set Inverell’s business community apart is its proactive drive to keep customers coming through the doors, no matter the economic climate,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“I congratulate Kim, Jane and Steve for the effort they have put in to pulling this book together with vouchers for all manner of businesses including retail, trades, entertainment and accommodation.

 

“At the moment, every dollar saved in the household budget counts and if by offering just a small discount on a meal or massage means people are more likely to walk through the doo I think that’s a good thing.”

 

Mr Marshall said he would be jumping on one voucher in particular.

 

“This value book covers every industry imaginable and I’ll be seriously thinking about bringing Alfie the Wonder Dog to one of the Inverell’s vet clinics next time his vaccinations are due to get 10 per cent off,” he said.

 

“I was pleased to hear retail figures for July in Inverell were better than expected which means residents are heeding the message of shop local, which I hope continues as we enter the final quarter of the year.

 

“Each book costs $30 with the funds going to support another local initiative the upcoming Sapphire Rock ‘N’ Roll Festival.”

 

Books can be purchased from Blair Athol Estate, The Brew Shed and Inverell Terrace Motor Lodge.
