Discover Local by Region

Australian Catalogues strongly supports our independent small to medium-sized retailers.

These retailers stimulate the local economy, create jobs and provide unique goods and services often not available from the major retailers.

Our focus for the 2017 festive season is to complement our displayed catalogues and business listings by increasing the number and profile of independent Small to Medium-sized Retailers (SMRs) across the Australian Catalogues site.

We recognise that it is often difficult for them to compete with larger national and multi-national businesses as they lack the same name recognition and advertising budget.

To help these independenr SMRs "Stand out from the Crowd" we are launching exciting new advertising segments aimed exclusively at maximising their exposure across on Australian Catalogues site.

In addition to Business Listings in the Retailers by Category section we have are adding 2 new segments exclusively for SMRs-

  • Discover Local Metro Promotion
  • Discover Local Regional Listings


Why Support your local independent Small & Medium-sized Retailers?

Here are 5 good reasons...

  1. Local economic stimulus-Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local economy.
  2. Support your lifestyle and community-Local business owners donate more to local schools, charities and sporting clubs that national chain-stores and are more committed to their community's welfare and future.
  3. More local jobs-Local SMRs are one of the largest employers nationally.
  4. Better customer service-SMRs normally are staffed by people with more specific product expertise and the owners are often on-site.
  5. You might get a better deal or some good advice-Unlike large retail chains, they can use their discretion to reward regular customers and provide quality product information and make personal recommendations.

There are a lot of wonderful SMRs out there providing great products and customer service.

We have introduced this section to provide these retailers an affordable, effective platform to promote themselves on our high traffic website alongside Australia's top retailers.

Supporting retailers 365 days a year

Most promotions aimed at supporting smaller business usually run for a few days or a couple of weeks at the longest, meaning that any benefits are generally short lived.

Our promotions run all year round as we recognise that so do most retailers.

Revisit your region often over the coming months as we continue to add more retailers.
