Businesses in the Lismore CBD are open and there is a sense of hope as they get back on their feet and the CBD once again pulses with life. 

Inspiring customers to come back and shop in the CBD Sarah Morrow from The Book Warehouse banded together with Ben Anderson from Country Town Digital and Wayfarer Publishing to bring CBD businesses together to create a $5,000 cash prize for one lucky shopper. 

Together Sarah and Ben door-knocked Lismore CBD businesses to get them on board with the promotion and generate the $5,000 prize giveaway. 

‘We have about 30 businesses on board where people can shop in the CBD and then enter the competition for the $5,000 prize money,’ Ben told The Echo

Businesses in the Lismore CBD are open and trading and very excited to be giving one of their customers this amazing cash prize,’ said Sarah.

Shoppers can enter the draw by purchasing from one of the 30 participating businesses throughout July and entering a photograph of the receipt and their details on the website: www.shoplismorecbd.com.au.  

‘It is great to see businesses getting on their feet and see customers and visitors back in the CBD bringing life and fun back to this part of Lismore. We are really excited about how we’re building back better and stronger together as the businesses and the broader community,’ said Ben.
