Minister for Employment and Small Business Di Farmer said shopping local was the greatest gift for small business owners.

“Small businesses across the state have done such a wonderful job supporting the health of Queenslanders, often bearing the brunt of COVID restrictions,” Minister Farmer said.

“It’s been a really tough two years and these businesses have always put their communities first – and now it’s our turn.

“With the Christmas countdown well and truly on, now is a great time to get out and support small business by shopping local.”
