JUST days into the Gatton, Lockyer and Brisbane Valley Star's new Town Proud promotion, and already businesses around the district are showing their support, with displays of buntings, balloons and badges.

With three major prize packs on offer, all you have to do to go into the draw is shop locally, in a business that is Town Proud.

Making it even easier is the massive selection of products offered by local businesses, from pumps to paper and everything in between.

Bruce Horrocks, Advertising Manager for the Gatton, Lockyer and Brisbane Valley Star, said the promotion rewards those people who support their local businesses.

"Think of it as a massive 'thank you' from all those retailers and suppliers who support the local district, offering jobs to our young people, and stocking the items we all need every day," Mr Horrocks said.

"And now, they are offering the chance to win some great value prizes to their customers."

With towns across the Lockyer Valley and Somerset region all showing their Town Proud colours, to be part of this great opportunity, just look for a business close to you.

"Once you have identified your participating businesses, and it is so easy to do, make your purchase, fill out the entry form and keep your receipt to validate your winning entry."

There will be three prize draws, totalling a massive $6000, and all for simply supporting a local Town Proud business of your choice.
