“EnergyAustralia is committed to supporting small business. Whether it’s a family business, a start up or an independent shop, small businesses can play an important part of shaping a neighbourhood’s character and strengthening a local community,” Mr Brady said.

“Our partnership with Shop Small is a unique way to show our support by getting behind a great initiative that actively encourages consumers to support small businesses within their local community.

“By shopping at small businesses, consumers are supporting investment and jobs in their local community.”
