Local Leaders | Yass Valley Business Chamber: How about a gift card for Mother's Day?

The Yass Valley Gift Cards are proving to be a real hit for local businesses and shoppers.

Since launching just before Christmas, we now have stores accepting the gift cards all over the Yass Valley – in Gundaroo, Sutton, Wee Jasper, Bowning, Binalong, Murrumbateman and Yass.  

You can use your gift card to buy coffee, a computer, get your car serviced…and, believe it or not, you could even buy a Yass Valley Gift card for your darling mum for Mothers’ Day.

The Business Chamber has had lots of positive feedback about how much the cards were appreciated as Christmas gifts…and I predict they will be even more popular for Mothers’ Day. 

So, with Mothers’ Day coming on Sunday, May 13, now is the time to get moving. Check out www.yassvalley.com.au/shoplocal/ to find out where you can purchase a Gift Card and the wonderful local businesses where your mum can go shopping with it. 

And if she lives in Canberra or Sydney or somewhere else, then the added bonus is that she will have to visit the beautiful Yass Valley to use her card.

Finally, you may have heard that the laws concerning gift cards will be changing later in the year. If you currently have a Yass Valley Gift Card, you won’t notice any difference – you can still spend it in all our wonderful participating businesses across the Yass Valley, and it has a 12-month expiry from the date of purchase. After October, any new Yass Valley Gift Card will have a three-year expiry. That’s all. Thanks for shopping local!
