Nominations are now open for a Canterbury Bankstown Local Business Award.
BUSINESSES do so much more than sell goods and services.
"They're an integral part of every community and our everyday lives," says Precedent Productions managing director Steve Loe.
"Small business people and they're staff are part of the social fabric of our communities," he said.
"They're the people we stop to chat with on the way to and from work, and often become friends as well as sounding boards, outside our families and colleagues, who we can turn to for advice or just some sympathy."
Mr Loe said nominating your favourite local business for the annual Canterbury Bankstown Local Business Awards, was an excellent way to thank them from their efforts, which so often go unrecognised.
Nominations for the Awards are now open and the thousands of online nominations already received show that businesses in Canterbury Bankstown have many loyal and happy customers who appreciate what they do.
Anyone who votes will be in the running to win a Nespresso KitchenAid Coffee Machine.
The awards are made possible thanks to the support of major sponsors, Canterbury Bankstown Council, NOVA Employment, Bankstown City Unity Bank and Bankstown Central and support sponsors Revesby Village Centre, Revesby Workers' Club, Bx Networking, Campsie Centre and MWLP.
"Their support of the Local Business Awards is essential to the success of the program and it reflects their recognition of the importance of local businesses in the Canterbury Bankstown area," Mr Loe said.
"Now is your chance to thank your favourite businesses by voting for them online at thebusinessawards.com.au or by filling out nomination coupons which have been distributed throughout the community."
Nominations close on Tuesday, June 19.
