Buy Local, Employ Local, Enjoy Local

Buy, Employ, Enjoy - Be Kind to Business  

Buy | Employ | Enjoy Local is a Yarra Ranges Council initiative designed to put our community front and centre of our recovery efforts and daily life.  We want to showcase everything we have right here in our own backyards.

Did you know we have over 400 hairdressers in the Yarra Ranges? Or more than 22 local galleries? From dentists to florists, new cars to second-hand books, butchers, bakers and even candle makers – you can find what you’re looking for right here in the Yarra Ranges.

We all know that the Yarra Ranges is the best place to live, work and play, and perhaps no time has this been more evident than over the past 18 months. The incredible Yarra Ranges spirit shone with communities coming together to support each other and we spent more time closer to home, exploring our local surrounds and making new discoveries.

Over the last challenging 18months, we've been kind to each other, to businesses and to ourselves. As we recovery from the impacts of the pandemic, and the recent storm and floods, we're committed to continuing to support our Yarra Ranges community, and Buy, Employ, Enjoy Local.

We’ll be rolling out the campaign over the next few weeks with window stickers and footpath decals, banners, and our new Buy Local bags.

Look out for our Buy Local competitions. We’ll be offering giveaways to people who shop locally and share – with prize money being directed back into local business.

Buy Local Collateral Packs

We'll be delivering new window stickers and posters to as many businesses as possible. And if you're a retail store, you can also receive our new Buy Local bags to use for your customers. If we don't make it to your business, packs will shortly be available to collect from your local community link, or to request below through our Expression of Interest form:
