New initiative encourages people to shop local in Mudgee

If you’re a strong advocate of “spending local” you’re going to love the latest initiative from the Mudgee Chamber of Commerce.

They will soon be launching “Mudgee Money” – a gift card program that will encourage people to shop local in the Mid Western Region by locking dollars into being spent at local participating stores.

Those wanting to buy the Mudgee Money Gift Cards will be able to choose the amount of money the gift card will be worth and then this will be loaded onto the card where it can then be passed on as a gift.

Someone who has been gifted the card will be able to redeem it at any “Redemption” store’s configured EFTPOS facility in the region.

The Mudgee Chamber of Commerce is calling for all Mid Western Region Businesses to be involved in the new Mudgee Money Gift Card campaign. To find out more information – email

According to the Mudgee Chamber of Commerce, “If we increased spending in our Mid Western Region by just 2% per year then this would create 23 additional jobs and generate $4 million dollars in additional economic value to the region. Just imagine if we could increase that by more than 2%.”

So support the region that supports you and next time you’re thinking about buying a gift, consider using a Mudgee Money Gift Card.

Don’t forget to also support local by finding out what is on offer in the local region and aiming to shop from local businesses whenever you can.
