The second and final round of the myKatherine discount voucher scheme has ended today.


During this round, $60,000 worth of vouchers were redeemed by locals and visitors since the round commenced just over 6 (six) weeks ago. Over 3 thousand customers and 37 businesses registered with the program, resulting in close to $490,000 worth of sales to locally owned retail, hospitality, and tourism businesses.


“Thank you to all the users and businesses involved with the myKatherine voucher scheme. Katherine Town Council is grateful we could help Katherine businesses during this typically slow sales period” said Mayor Lis Clark.


Across both rounds, the program redeemed 6307 vouchers totalling $723,937.51 in sales across the local community. $90,000 in funding was provided by the Northern Territory Government and Katherine Town Council.


Katherine Town Council will continue to explore ways to support local businesses.


This program would not have been possible without the funding support from the Northern Territory Government and the technology supplied by the City of Darwin.


Minister for Small Business, Paul Kirby said the scheme had been popular right across the Territory.

“It’s fantastic to see so many Territorian’s jumping on board this scheme and supporting local”.

“When you buy local, you are backing local jobs and keeping business ticking over.”

“Small business is the backbone of our economy, and we must keep supporting the sector as we make our comeback from the coronavirus crisis.”
