Start thinking local for your chance to win big

DALBY businesses are encouraging locals to keep their money in town by offering an extra incentive to shop locally in the lead-up to Christmas.

As a reward for spending money in Dalby, customers will go in the draw to win a major prize package.

Shoppers will receive tickets in the draw for every purchase over $10 at participating businesses and the more money you spend, the more chances to win.

Sunshine Mitre 10 has provided the major prize again this year, with a variety of items to treat the lucky winner.

Retail supervisor Lena Taylor said she chose a little bit of everything for this year's prize in the hope it would make someone's Christmas.

"Hopefully it's something that will keep someone happy for Christmas,” she said.

"I hope they enjoy the prize.”

The impressive major prize package is valued at more than $3000 and includes a seven-piece outdoor setting, four-burner barbecue, outdoor umbrella, cast-iron bench seat, six- person tent, wheelbarrow, chainsaw and much more.

The prize will be drawn at the Christmas Street Party on November 28.

To get involved, simply shop at participating businesses, fill out your form and pop it in the barrel at Mitre 10 or Dalby Newsagency.
