Our local region is well and truly “open for business” in the aftermath of the flooding, Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz has declared.
“Having spoken to many business owners in the Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley, Logan and Gold Coast areas over the past week and a half, I’m urging local residents to go out and buy local to help them get them back on their feet,” he said.
“So many households, businesses and properties have been impacted upon but we’re back up and running and ready for you.”
“The best thing we can do to help our local farmers and businesses in this challenging time is buy locally.”
Mr Buchholz said the Easter break was a great opportunity to get out and about and support local businesses and tourism operators.
“For example our townships like Canungra and Tamborine Mountain are readily accessible and the best thing we can do is to get out this weekend for daytrips and support locals who have been hit hard.”
“Even those businesses that weren’t water affected have lost stock due to power outages and custom over the period of the floods.”
“I really encourage everyone to enjoy this Easter break by going out in our local community and spending their money on the many attractions this region has to offer.”
