THE Queensland Times is proud to launch the new campaign City Pride, encouraging people to shop at Ipswich City businesses for the chance to share in a prize pool worth $11,000.

The shop local campaign will officially begin on August 1 to support local business and industry and encourage the future growth of Ipswich City.

More than 370 Ipswich businesses have signed on to take part in the promotion and will be decked out with the City Pride logo and merchandise.

Shoppers who buy goods or services at participating stores and businesses can pick up an entry form and mail it to the QT to be eligible to win one of three major gift wallets.

The gift wallets are worth $2750, $2750 and $5500 and winners will be able to spend the money at any City Pride participating business.

Entrants must retain their original purchase receipt to be eligible to win and entries must be received before the draw dates to be included in the gift wallet prize draws.

Winners will be drawn on August 15, August 22 and September 5 and published in the QT.

Queensland Times general manager Mike Dorey said City Pride could not have been launched without its sponsors.

Ipswich City Council and University of Southern Queensland are foundation sponsors of the campaign.

Major sponsors include Ipswich Riverlink Shopping Centre, Ipswich Events Corporation and Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre.

Sponsors also include Booval Fair Shopping Centre, Brassall Shopping Centre and the campaign is supported by Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry and radio station River 94.9.

Pick up the August 1 edition of The Queensland Times for a full list of participating City Pride businesses and details about how you can take part.
