The Maryborough CBD is open for business

17 Novemeber, 2017

To encourage people into the Maryborough CBD to have a look at the refurbishment works, Council is backing the Maryborough CBD Open For Business campaign.

Over the next five weeks people shopping in the CBD will have the chance to win one of four $250 vouchers to spend in a CBD business.

“In the past nine years there have been massive changes to the Maryborough CBD,” City Precinct Development portfolio Councillor Daniel Sanderson said.

“The rejuvenation program started in 2008 in Lower Kent Street and has progressively moved around the CBD.”

The Maryborough Open for Business campaign reflects the longevity of interruptions to businesses as the roadworks and streetscape works progressed around the CBD.

“In the past two years the work has been almost non-stop as we’ve moved down Kent and Adelaide streets, the Adelaide Street flood works, and now into Lennox, Ellena and Bazaar streets.”

The Maryborough CBD Open for Business campaign will start on Monday, November 20.

Anyone shopping in the Maryborough CBD between Monday November 20 and Wednesday, December 20 can use their dockets as an entry for a chance to win one of four $250 vouchers to spend with a CBD business.

“It’s very simple to enter. Spend $10 in any of the CBD businesses, write your name and contact details on the back of the docket and put it in the collection boxes at the participating outlets.

“The prize draw will be made during the Heritage Markets on Thursday, December 21, just in time for Christmas.”

The Maryborough CBD is bounded by Lennox Street, Sussex Street, Bazaar Street and Ellena Street.

“The campaign is targeting the main CBD blocks as they have worked through the refurbishment interruptions.

The campaign is being backed through the discretionary funds of Councillors Sanderson, Truscott, Hansen and Maddern.
