Bayside Retailers Gear Up for Christmas

27 November 2013

Bayside retailers are encouraging community members to shop locally as they gear up for a busy Christmas.

Aimed at creating more Christmas cheer in Bayside and encouraging greater patronage of local shopping strips, Bayside City Council has launched the ‘Shops on Show’ Christmas competition, with shoppers invited to judge the best window display for a chance to win a share of over $1,500 in prizes.

Votes for either the best shop window or the best shopping strip can be lodged on Council’s website until December 6, after which nominations will be assessed by a judging panel and prize winners announced on 12 December.

The winning nominator of the Best Shop Window will receive $500 cash from competition sponsor, Mortgage Choice Bayside, and a hamper from sponsor, Chocolatier.

The winning nominator of the Best Shopping Strip will receive an overnight package at Brighton Bay Luxury Apartments valued at $800.

The ten shops that receive the most nominations for The Best Shop Window will be professionally photographed and a judging panel will choose the winner.

The winner of The Best Shopping Strip will be drawn randomly from the ten with the most nominations.

Individual Bayside retailers can submit their shop in the competition by contacting Bayside City Council by phone on 9599 4646 or email

Bayside residents can register their vote/s on Council’s website until 6 December.
