? Cheers to the slow but gradual easing of restrictions, watching not just Waller realty but to all businesses who are starting to see that light at the end of the tunnel. The showing of exceptional strength, courage and perseverance during this whole pandemic has been the most heart-filled motivator and deeply felt inspiration to have witnessed and to have been a part of. ⠀

Shop Local

Shop local and support jobs and businesses!

The City of Greater Bendigo, in partnership with Be.Bendigo, is urging the community to shop locally wherever possible to help protect local businesses and jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

So what can you do to help local businesses during this period? It’s simple but effective. Support small businesses and shop locally wherever possible. Explore what these businesses can offer online, purchase gift cards or look for special offers or available delivery services.

If you spend $100 locally, nearly $70 stays here in the local community. Make a difference. Help local businesses and protect jobs.
