    Orange City Council has launched a plan to kick-start the retail sector of the local business community by giving away one thousand $50 gift cards to local residents.

    Launching the ‘Orange City Council Retail Recovery’ campaign, Mayor Reg Kidd said local residents can go in the draw to win gift cards by entering a coupon from a local newspaper or by entering online.

    “We know our local retailers have been doing it tough during the pandemic,” Cr Reg Kidd said. “Local residents are very loyal to the Orange business community, so this campaign will make it easier for them to spend in a local store.”

    “Now’s the time for residents to get their entries in. For the next five weeks, we’ll be doing a draw every week. Each week we'll be drawing out two hundred names and giving two hundred winners a $50 Shop Orange gift card to spend at a local participating business.”

    Orange City Council Employment and Economic Development Committee chair, Cr Tony Mileto believes the ‘Retail Recovery’ campaign will be a great way to help local businesses.

    “When someone uses one of these cards at a local store, it’s very likely they’ll be topping it up to buy something that’s worth more than fifty dollars,” Cr Tony Mileto said. “That’s going to increase the value of the Council’s spending.”

    “$50,000 is only a fraction of the revenue that’s spent at local stores in a year, but it all helps. It could tip the balance that will let someone make perhaps their first visit to a local store since the pandemic close-down.”

    How does it work?

    Full terms & conditions for the campaign can be found here.

    The list of Orange retailers where you can spend your Shop Orange card can be found here.

    There are effectively two separate competitions, one using printed entry forms and one using online entries.

    As well as local newspapers, the printed entry forms can be found at the Civic Centre and the Orange Visitors Centre. After the weekly draw, the printed forms from the previous week will be discarded, so residents can enter again with a new form for a draw in the following week.

    Online entries can be made by visiting the YourSay Orange website.

    To make it as fair as we can, someone will need to register with an active email address to enter the online draw. The draw of the online entries each week will include entries in previous weeks.
