COMING SOON - WATCH THIS SPACE - Boomerang Bags Shop Local Campaign 

We want residents to consider spending their dollars locally when and where they are able to, and rewarding those who do! Spending locally directly supports the vibrant community we have in the Rural City of Wangaratta creating jobs, growth and innovation within our region.

When you spend over $50 at businesses located in the Rural City of Wangaratta municipality (includes surrounding townships such as King Valley, Milawa, Eldorado, Glenrowan etc.) you have scored yourself a free Boomerang Bag. These bags make excellent reusable shopping backs, grocery bags or even a new look handbag. 

Once launched in early February, consumers are to simply bring their receipt or receipts (multiple to reach threshold is fine) into the Wangaratta Visitor Information Centre, located at 100 Murphy Street Wangaratta to collect a Boomerang Bag tote.

Then it is over to you to show off your local shopping spree with pride, with a quality local made shopping bag by Boomerang Bags Wangaratta. We would love to see it and allow us to be tagging us in any social posts #shoplocalwangaratta. 

One bag per customer. Until stocks last - this page will be updated once stocks run out.
