Love Local




A group of locally based community Shopping Centres throughout Victoria have joined forces to support, help spread awareness and create opportunity much needed since moving back to Stage 3 restrictions.

The ‘Love Local’ initiative is giving away prizes on a weekly basis to customers who spend locally. Love Local firstly encourages all communities to register through the online public Facebook event to help spread awareness of the initiative, share the love for our much needed small Victorian businesses and give further businesses across the state an opportunity to take part.


To enter simply takes three steps!

1 – Spend $10 or more at a food retailer at your local participating Shopping Centre

2 – Take a photo of the receipt showing your purchase

3 – Upload the receipt to the ‘Love Local’ campaign page by Sunday that week and complete the entry form here:



Winners will be drawn each Monday by 5pm AEST, contacted directly and announced on Facebook & The Mernda Junction website.

You will be able to follow the initiative through the ‘Love Local’ campaign page that will keep you updated with numbers supporting local businesses in their community, how much all together we can spend and how much people are showing their support and love by registering.

Each Centre will have individual prize pools up for grabs, jump on your local Centre’s social media to see the lockdown prizes that could be yours!Many small businesses are facing with what seems to be almost impossible challenges to operate even the basics of their business, it is time for Victorians to come together and make the impossible, possible.
