It was my pleasure to attend the launch of the Shop Small campaign here on Tuesday evening. I’d like to thank Minister McCormack and my colleagues for spreading the message of just how important it is to shop local within our communities. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. There’s great value to be found by shopping local, all while supporting local jobs and providing security to local businesses and their families. 
Since Shop Small began this month I’ve been happy to see this message taken up throughout my electorate. There has always been a strong emphasis on supporting small business within the community. Last month I was thrilled to see an even greater turnout for the annual Bayside Business Expo held in Wynnum. The expo provides a great opportunity for small businesses just starting out and established businesses to network and share their knowledge. The expo also showcases what these local businesses had to offer to locals who dropped in.

As an avid supporter of small business, I look forward to seeing initiatives like Shop Small and the Bayside Business Expo provide a boost to local businesses this holiday shopping season.
