Shop Local Gift Cards

Gifting that supports local

Take the hassle out of shopping or gift buying with the Shop Local Wagga Wagga gift card. With range of participating local stores it is the perfect present for anyone!

Launched in October 2021, the program has been designed to support our local businesses and keep money in our local community. It is often
stated that $100 spent locally equates to a $180 impact on the local economy due to the multiplier effect. That is, when money is spent locally, some of that money (about 40%) is then reinvested into other local stores and so on, and so on (about 7 times).

How it works

The Shop Local Wagga gift card is an EFTPOS-based gift card that works like any other gift card or voucher based system, the only difference is the money can only be spent in Wagga.

Simply visit a Load Up Store to collect a card and decide how much money to load onto it, anywhere between $10 to $1,000 per card. You can then use the card to purchase goods and services at any participating business. The cards cannot be redeemed outside of the participating store network.
