City Pride is a huge hit with big and small
IT'S not just small retailers that are getting involved with City Pride, major shopping centres are also out to support local business.
Redbank Plaza has been Ipswich's go-to for everything from sporting equipment to movies since it opened in 1985 and Yasmin Chrzescijanski said the centre has always received support from the local community.
"Ipswich isn't just a city, it's a community of people of families and of businesses and that's what makes it such a great place to be," she said.
"With a 30-year history in Ipswich, Redbank Plaza is the shopping centre many have grown up with, and that's something we cherish.
"We are lucky to be home to so many great free community activities and events like our upcoming Family Show Day and our school holiday shows which are things today's children will look back on with fond memories in another 30 years."
Ms Chrzescijanski said shopping locally is what keeps a community like Ipswich growing.
"Ipswich is a great city with so much to offer which is evidenced by the growing number of young families calling this area home," she said.
"City Pride is a great initiative. Not only is it going to give a helping hand to families in the area through the $11,000 giveaway, but it's also all about supporting the local businesses who provide jobs for our community members every day."
Redbank Plaza will be running a Show Family Fun Day with unlimited rides, entertainment, show bags and more on August 9.
