Nationals in government push Sydneysiders to buy Christmas pressies from Clarence and Richmond valley small business

Small businesses in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys could have a better Christmas if they sign up to the Nationals in Government’s new online Buy Regional hub, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.

“Christmas is make or break time for many smaller family businesses, particularly in difficult years like 2019 with natural disasters stripping locals of much of their disposable income,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“That is why the Nationals’ Buy Regional campaign couldn’t come at a better time.

“We have some fantastic local retailers and I want as many as possible to register their wares, free of charge, at in time for the Christmas shopping season.”

Mr Gulaptis said the Nationals in Government were already promoting the initiative in Sydney,

encouraging our city cousins to browse six categories, Wine, Fashion, Food, Gifts for Kids, Art & Design and Christmas hampers, to find gifts for their friends and family and support regional NSW towns.

“As Nationals Leader John Barilaro puts it, we’re telling Sydneysiders to ‘favour the flavour’ of regional NSW and ask their butchers and greengrocers for meat, poultry and produce sourced from clean green regions like the Clarence and Richmond Valleys,” Mr Gulaptis said.”
