Council’s Place Manager, Bonnie McIntosh, said she is working closely with local merchants to activate the economy and create opportunities for businesses in the precinct.
“A range of kid’s activities including giant games, silent disco and interactive wildlife display will be under the shade of trees near the Telstra Tower in Fraser Street, and boutique craft stalls will be ready for the community to enjoy across the two-day event,” she said.
“These annual markets are important to support our local hospitality and retail businesses. We are looking forward to visitors and locals taking advantage of the special offers and having a good time with their families.”
Stephen Schneider, President of the Greater Shepparton Business Network, invited all traders and shoppers to participate and enjoy the fun and bargains available at the Summer City Market.
“The Greater Shepparton Business Network encourages all traders to get behind this iconic Shepparton sale event. The Summer City Market provides traders from all retail sectors with a perfect opportunity to offer local and visiting consumers’ exceptional end of season clearance bargains,” he said.
“Whether you gear up in store, on your footpath, or book a stall in the fresh new Maude Street Precinct, we encourage all Shepparton CBD traders to optimise this excellent opportunity to celebrate the end of summer and prepare for the impending autumn and winter season. This truly is a great way to clear out end of season lines and offer your loyal customers some exceptional bargains!”
Residents are encouraged to get out, shop local and enjoy the great promotions and entertainment on offer across the CBD.
