We can all be Penrith Proud

We can all be Penrith Proud

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community and Penrith’s pride is core to who we are. Now we can show that pride and help our local economy at a critical time.

Our local economy is underpinned by nearly 15,000 businesses – 96% of those are small businesses - who have been hard hit by the impacts of COVID-19. Keeping these businesses viable means our local jobs, services and facilities will still be around long after the pandemic.

Your daily purchasing decisions can make a difference. Buy that coffee, try that hair salon and if you’re in business, source materials from local suppliers and use local tradespeople when you can.

You’d be surprised by how many of the things we need are available locally – either made in the area or supplied and sold by businesses that employ local residents.

Penrith Proud promotes the benefits of buying local and will celebrate many of the unique businesses that are doing us all proud with their innovation, industrious spirit and entrepreneurship.

Penrith Proud is an initiative of Council’s COVID-19 Recovery Taskforce. See the Penrith Rising Strong Recovery Plan here.
