Great Southern residents are being urged to sign up for an app which aims to encourage the support of local businesses.

The Great Southern section of the Local Advantage app launched on Monday with more than 100 offers from more than 70 businesses.

The initiative has been supported by a partnership between the Albany Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the City of Albany.

ACCI chief executive Lisa Smith said she was excited to have the program up and running.

She said the benefits of the initiative would be widespread for both local residents, who would save money, and for businesses, who would be able to reward their regular customers.

“All businesses who sign up automatically get a free subscription, but I’d encourage them to also consider purchasing a subscription for their teams, “ she said.

“In a world where you can shop anywhere, shop local.”

Payment of a $54.99 yearly subscription is required to access the offers, which remain in place for 12 months and can be used multiple times by a single account.

The program has already been operating through the app in the South West for six years.

Business can register at bit.ly/3LCXzPq.
