There’s no need to look anywhere else when it comes to goods and services, as Hobsons Bay’s businesses are truly ahead of the game.

It’s time to get behind these great local traders as they reopen their doors, following a turbulent few months. The community is invited to take part in Council’s ‘Shop Hobsons Bay’ Facebook and Instagram competition and show why you #shopHobsonsBay.

Between now and midnight on Sunday 28 June, regular posts will be published on Council’s Facebook and Instagram pages titled ‘ENTER TO WIN’ with the #shopHobsonsBay hashtag. To enter, in the comment section of these posts:

  1. Tag your favourite Hobsons Bay business
  2. Tell us why you love them or post a pic of what you have purchased from them
  3. Drop the #shopHobsonsBay hashtag

Ten randomly selected winners will each receive $100 credit to use at the business they tagged. Winners will be announced on Council’s Facebook and Instagram on Monday 29 June.

One of the positive outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the way local communities have built stronger connections.  Council recognises the important role local businesses play in Hobsons Bay and wants to build on that sense of community connection to help them get back on track.
