Cost of living win for local seniors

Thursday, 17 January 2019

More savings are now on offer for seniors in the Oatley electorate, with 22 additional local businesses signing up to the NSW Seniors Card program to offer discounted products and services.

Member for Oatley Mark Coure MP said a recent campaign by the NSW Government successfully increased the number of participating businesses statewide by more than 28%, with a total of 109 local businesses now offering discounts to Seniors Card members in the Oatley electorate.

“Being able to save on the cost of living when you have a fixed income is important and the Seniors Card is bringing more local discounts to our community than ever before,” Mr Coure said.

A recent survey of 35,000 Seniors Card members revealed NSW seniors are more likely to try a new business if it offers a Seniors Card discount or deal, and 70 per cent of seniors would return to a business if it offered a Seniors Card discount.

“More than 90 per cent of eligible older people across NSW are Seniors Card members, including 32,000 card holders in the Oatley electorate,” Mr Coure added.

“I urge all businesses in the St George area to join and see how the Seniors Card program can benefit your business by building a loyal customer base among seniors, while supporting our community.”

Baby Bean Organics in Riverwood, Ultra Tune Blakehurst and Broadarrow Café in Narwee are amongst the 22 new businesses that recently joined the program.
