Retailers are celebrating Main Streets of Australia Week : 16 - 22 May. This is a wonderful way to acknowledge main street traders in our town for being a key part of the economy and vibrancy of Castlemaine and surrounds.
To spread the message of #buylocal, Business Mount Alexander captured local shop keepers with the Mainstreet Australia signage. Here's photos of business owners Daryl from GIANT Castlemaine , Forest Creek Tattoo (Leonie hard at work through the window) and Lisa at The Tea Dispensary Castlemaine
We'll post more photos of our local business folk during the week!
