Buying Local

Now more than ever, we need to buy local and support our local businesses. Not only are we encouraging our community to buy local, but we are buying locally ourselves.

As part of our response to COVID-19, we are prioritising our own spending with businesses and contractors within the City of Vincent. The WA Local Government Association has facilitated this through a platform called VendorPanel Marketplace. VendorPanel Marketplace is a proven local economic development tool that helps buyers connect with local suppliers.

We strongly encourage suppliers within the City of Vincent to register, so we can do our bit to buy local and continue to support our business community. Registration with the platform is easy and entirely free.
