Help Jennings Print to Support Local Businesses Post-COVID
As a family-owned and locally operated business, Jennings Print knows how difficult and disruptive the COVID-19 pandemic has been for many small businesses in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Hunter Valley and Central Coast regions. Some valued and respected local businesses haven’t survived, while others are hanging on by a thread and in desperate need of support.
Newcastle and the Hunter have long been hailed as a close-knit, supportive and generous community with an unerring sense of local pride, and it’s a reputation we’re proud of. In true Australian spirit, when we are called on to lend a hand, the Hunter Region is well known for digging deep and doing whatever we can to help each other out.
Because we are firm believers in the value of supporting local businesses, Jennings Print have always made – and will continue to make – a concerted effort to promote the importance of the “Trade Local” initiative. Right now, we’re taking extra steps to encourage the Newcastle community to band together and support local small businesses, so more of us can make it through the tough times.
The message from Mark Jennings, CEO of Jennings Print, is black and white – “Jennings Print started as a local small business whose mission was to service other local small businesses. We take so much pride in what we do, and we’ve worked hard over the last 45 years to deliver high quality products and excellent service, but our business has become the success it is because our community has made the conscious choice to trade local. Jennings Print is positive proof that together we are stronger.”
Our “trade local” campaign, on the other hand, has been emblazoned on local buses in full colour, combining the power of great, eye-catching graphic design with the increased visibility of public transport, in an effort to spread our ‘printspirational’ message far and wide.
