Russ wakes up and rejects recession

RUSS Holland reckons Coffs Coast businesses and consumers can work together to beat the recession blues.

Russ, who owns Coffs Harbour's Club Financial Services, is encouraging the community to be part of the Reject The Recession promotion being run by Seven's Sunrise program.

By registering your small business online at au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/sunrise, you will be offering discounted services to customers who carry the Sunrise Family card.

The promotion runs until June 30.

Russ is even getting into the spirit by offering 10 per cent commission cashback for his clients.

“I saw this as a great opportunity to get local businesses to support the Reject The Recession concept,” Russ said. “Consumers also need to be on the lookout for participating firms who are displaying the Reject the Recession signs.”

Russ said these bold posters were available from his office at 27 Gundagai Street.

“If we can get enough support from the business community to do this, we could even get Sunrise to do the weather from Coffs Harbour like they did with the Pet Porpoise Pool last year.”
