Kyabram Chamber of Commerce vice-president Debi Kitt and president Lou Ciavarella are looking forward to seeing lots of Katchyainky stickers around the area, along with plenty of entries for this year's Kyabram - shop local promotion.
Kyabram Chamber of Commerce’s Katchyainky shop local promotional campaign is back for this year.
The promotion is expected to run for eight weeks, with prize draws every two weeks, and there are two ways you can enter and win.
One thousand red and black Katchyainky stickers have been printed and distributed to participating Chamber of Commerce members.
You can collect a sticker while stocks last, with no buy necessary, from any of the businesses taking part in the promotion and then display it in prominent places such as your car, bicycle, pram, mailbox, bag or backpack.
Once you have displayed the sticker, take a photo of it and email the picture to email@example.com, or print the photo and drop it in to Boomerang Travel at 210 to 212 Allan St.
You must include contact details so you can be contacted if you win.
Chamber of Commerce members will also be on the lookout for stickers being displayed across the area.
The second way to enter is to complete the entry form, which will be included in the Katchyainky advertisement in the Kyabram Free Press each week during the promotion.
All entries, in whichever format they arrive in, will be numbered and put into the prize draw every two weeks.
Prizes to the value of about $200 will be awarded in each draw and may be in the form of Chamber of Commerce vouchers or items. If an entry wins it will not be entered for subsequent prize draws.
The promotion starts today and the names of the winners will appear in the Kyabram Free Press.
The first prize draw will take place on May 12 with the winner and the prize they have won to be printed in the Free Press on May 14.
Twenty-eight Kyabram Chamber of Commerce members are taking part in the promotion and chamber president Lou Ciavarella said he was pleased Katchyainky was being so well supported.
‘‘We would like to thank all the Chamber of Commerce members that are taking part in this Katchyainky promotion and the Kyabram Free Press for promoting the campaign,’’ Mr Ciavarella said.
‘‘Retailers really appreciate the support they get from local shoppers and this promotion gives them the opportunity to say thank you and give something back.
‘‘We really want to encourage people to shop local as its important for the whole community.’’
