Advance Morwell, together with retailer groups from Moe, Traralgon and the LCBTA, are excited to be launching a Shop Local Gift Card Program, which will use the EFTPOS network as the transaction processing platform.
This Program was rolled out successfully in November 2014 by the Traralgon Chamber of Commerce & Industry as a pilot project, and as a result of it’s success, we’re now expanding it across the entire Latrobe City
Using a ‘closed loop system” the program enables participating businesses to accept ‘Shop Latrobe City Gift Cards’ in their stores, in the same way that you would accept an eftpos or credit card.
We invite all businesses throughout the Latrobe City to participate in the Gift Card Program, as it’s success will be dependant upon providing gift card recipients with diversity to shop at as many stores as possible throughout the region. So far over 40 businesses are participating in the program, with many more showing interest in joining.
The Shop Latrobe City Gift Card Program will encourage consumers to shop locally, and enables small businesses to compete with the larger stores and shopping centres, who all offer their own Gift Cards. Business & Corporate level members can join the program from the Events tab on the website.
