The countdown is on til Christmas and Redlands residents are shopping up a storm!
With less than month until the jolly man in red makes his way to the bay, President of the Redland City Chamber of Commerce, Garry Hargrave, says retail stores are off to a strong start.
He encourages everyone to shop locally and support small business owners in town.
“Those businesses we support create the infrastructure that really improves the Redland city,” he says.
Garry believes that small businesses are “the engine room of the economy” and his goal is to make Redlands the best place to do business in Australia.
