Gunny Money – the gift that keeps on giving

November 12, 2021

This Christmas, the gift that keeps on giving is a Gunny Money gift card.

The gift card program has already injected more than half a million dollars into the Gunnedah Shire economy, ensuring that money is spent at local businesses who are registered with the card.

Gunnedah Shire Council Director Planning and Environmental Services Andrew Johns said the Gunny Money gift card initiative was the perfect way to buy local this Christmas.

“Last month alone, people bought more than $130,000 worth of Gunny Money gift cards,” Mr Johns said.

“That’s spending that goes straight back into local businesses, local employment and local people. It’s just what Gunnedah needs after two years of disrupted trading due to COVID-19.

“Gunny Money gift cards also make a really thoughtful gift. They can be redeemed at more than 100 outlets in Gunnedah, from hair and beauty salons to hotels, and automotive and agricultural outlets to the cinema. There’s something for everyone.”

Gunny Money gift cards are also a popular choice for teacher presents, staff bonuses and incentives, staff Christmas presents and raffle prizes.

Gunny Money gift cards can be purchased at:

  • Why Leave Town:
  • Gunnedah Shire Council
  • Enchanted on Conadilly
  • Gunnedah Newsagency
  • The Verdict Café
  • Goodness & Gracious
  • Gunnedah Locksmiths
  • Karen Carter Chemist

People who have received a Gunny Money gift card are also encouraged to spend their cards this Christmas – either on something for themselves, gifts for their loved ones, maybe a turkey for the festive season, or even to pay bills such as vet bills or rates.
