The Barrier Daily Truth is the latest business to come on board for the Far West Gift Cards project.

The Far West Gift Cards have stemmed from the Far West Proud project that was development by Regional Development Australia Far West.

Project officer Shae Nevill said they were very excited to have the BDT join the initiative.

“We’re thrilled that the BDT has jumped on board as a Far West Gift Card redemption business, their involvement makes the project even more diverse, which is exciting for our region,” she said.

BDT General Manager Rod Niemann said they were happy to come on board with the initiative.

“The BDT is proud to be associated with the project,” he said.

“It’s a good idea to reinvigorate businesses in Broken Hill.

“Having it at the BDT gives people more options to buy newspapers or put ads in the paper.

“Come down to the BDT to use your gift cards.”

The project involves purchasing the gift cards which can then be spent at participating local stores.

“The project fosters economic growth for local businesses and develops the community with the overarching aim of motivating people to shop locally,” Shae said.

“The number of businesses involved is increasing weekly.

“The project is not exclusive to one industry and there is already a diverse range of businesses involved.

“If your business has an eftpos terminal we encourage you to get in contact so that you can benefit from the project.

“It will benefit your business in a positive way, advancing economic growth whilst fostering the development of communities in our region.”

Each load up and redemption store have the Far West Gift Cards project stickers which the community can recognise.

Shae said the response from the community continues to be very positive.

“People are excited about the project as it offers economic benefit to the communities in our region at no cost to local businesses.

“The cards function simply, working as eftpos cards that can be used as many times as the value allows.”

Shae said anyone wanting more information can contact RDA FW or go to the Far West Proud Facebook page to see all of the businesses involved.
