Crust Pizza in Thirroul buys all their meat from Thirroul IGA.
They use 100kg of chicken every week, and another 40kg of lamb. That’s a lot of meat- and a lot of money going back into our local economy.
“I want to support other local businesses like they support me,” says Crust owner Anne Doyle. “Their price is good and they’re right on my doorstep. In fact I’m in there 100 times a day- every time I run out of something! They’re an integral part of my business.”
It’s vital we are mindful with our money and shop locally this Christmas.
The Northern Illawarra is filled with excellent local businesses that need our support- so they, in return, can support us.
With the party season approaching, it’s hard to go past the many local cafes and restaurants who are itching to show you a good meal, and a good time!
When it comes to Christmas, not only do we have streets lined with retail outlets, we also have local makers and craftspeople creating unique and beautiful gift ideas. Instagram is a great place to find these wonderfully clever local, home-based businesses.
Ozway Realty’s Michael O’Neil and wife Linda always support local business, saying it’s vital we get behind families having a go.
“There are not many things you can’t pick up in our local shops,” he says.
“Shopping locally has social benefits too. You run in to grab something and come our 30 mins later because you keep running into people. It helps build community spirit!”

“Not to mention the benefits of keeping the money local. Why give it to multi-nationals when you can support local families employing local kids?
“If you live in this area it’s important you shop in this area and use your money the best way possible to support other local families.
“Local business depends on local residents.”
