THE Power on Bundy campaign took on special significance as it made a pit stop at Cooper's Home Timber and Hardware Bundaberg.

The campaign is aimed at revitalising the business community in the region by encouraging Bundaberg people to spend locally following the destructive floods and go into the draw to win a Holden Colorado 4X4 Ute.

Mr McPhillips said Cooper's Home Timber and Hardware Bundaberg was a fitting location for the campaign.

"Having Cooper's Home Hardware open again is a huge testament to the resilience of Steve Cooper and his team," said Mr McPhillips.

"It really will show the whole of our region that we are "open for business" and we couldn't think of a better place for the Power on Bundy Holden Colorado to be on display this week."

Mr Neil McPhillips said entering the competition was simple.

"Anyone who spends $50 or more at any business in the Bundaberg Region is eligible to win by simply putting their name and phone number on the back of their receipt and placing it in an entry box, barrel or specially marked wheelie bin," he said.

Mr McPhillips urged businesses to get involved and set up their own entry boxes.

"We are currently developing a prize for the business where the winning entry comes from, which will contain prizes from Bundaberg Broadcasters, News Mail and Augmented Reality, among others".
