Shop Local this Christmas

5 December 2019

Shoppers can take advantage of special discounts and deals this Christmas as part of a new Shop Local campaign to promote retailers in the Parramatta CBD.

Local retailers in the Parramatta CBD will benefit from a marketing campaign aimed at attracting people to the precinct and helping the CBD remain a vibrant destination for visitors and residents alike.

The Parramatta Light Rail team is working closely with businesses in Parramatta and have teamed up with a number of local retailers to bring you some fantastic deals this Christmas. There are a range of unique retailers in the Parramatta CBD and when you shop local, you’re not only helping the business but you are also supporting the local economy and the employment of local people.

The Shop Local campaign is part of the Parramatta Light Rail’s ‘Activate Parramatta’ plan to attract visitors and shoppers to the Parramatta CBD and across the wider area by promoting local businesses, event and activities before and during construction.

Major construction on Parramatta’s Church Street, from the Riverside Theatres to Centenary Square, including the ‘Eat Street’ dining strip will begin in June 2020. The street will be closed to car traffic from 1 February 2020 for construction teams to establish mobile work sites and to install temporary hoardings.
