Buy Local

Did you know?

That if every adult living in the City of Melton spent just $5 more a week at locally owned businesses rather than buying online or spending outside Melton then the flow on multiplier effect could see an additional $125 million* captured in the local economy each year. 

This means more local jobs, better businesses and a more vibrant community to live in

$125 million = 2080 full-time jobs
(based on the average Australian Salary of $60,000 per annum)

*Calculation is based on an adult population of 96,685 Melton Residents (2016 census) all spending an extra $5 a week at a locally owned business, multiplied by 5 which is the commonly recognised ‘local spend multiplier’.
