The Mudgee Chamber of Commerce is urging local businesses to get involved in the lead up to Country v City Origin match on May 7, by dressing up their shopfronts.
They’re running a Best Dressed Business Competition, with the winner to receive a signed Country jersey and a family pass to the game.
Judging is on the Wednesday before the match, with a Country player to visit the winner for an official presentation the following day.
Benefits include the wide exposure for businesses involved, with the winner of the Waratahs competition was shared on the team Facebook page to tens of thousands of people.
Chamber president, Greg Dowker, said there is plenty for them to get excited about with the coming match.
“The boost an event like this brings to town is quite incredible and once the weekend finishes there is a snowball effect,” he said.
“They go back and talk about the hospitality, the food, and we get the tourism.”
