SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESS WITH DINE & DISCOVER

Wednesday, 28 April 2021

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today joined NSW Treasurer, Dominic Perrottet to encourage Penrith residents to take advantage of the State Government’s Dine & Discover NSW program.

 

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the $500 million program will provide a shot in the arm to some of the community’s hardest hit businesses.

 

“The Dine & Discover program has already proven popular but there are still plenty of vouchers up for grabs. So claim yours and help a favourite local business.

 

“This is not only about giving NSW residents a spending boost, but about keeping people in jobs and businesses in businesses - and that’s something everyone can get behind," he said.

 

Stuart Ayres said it is great to see that over 188 Penrith LGA businesses have registered for the Dine & Discover program.

 

“It’s not too late for businesses to register and vouchers are valid until 30 June 2021.

 

“These vouchers are about supporting our local economy and easing the cost of living for families,” Stuart Ayres said.

 

Stuart Ayres said over 33,890 vouchers have already been redeemed at registered businesses across the Penrith LGA.

 

“Now is an ideal time to continue to support our local businesses and I encourage customers to get out and about safely.”

 

NSW residents can easily apply online to receive their vouchers through the latest version of the Service NSW app and website, and a non-digital solution is available to customers who don’t have a smartphone or compatible device.

 

Every NSW resident aged 18 and over is eligible for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total, to spend in participating businesses.

 

Dine & Discover NSW vouchers will be divided into two categories:

 

  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.

 

  • Two $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, available 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.

 

The vouchers can only be used at eligible businesses that have implemented a COVID Safety Plan and are registered as COVID Safe.
