Blacksmith Specialty Coffee in Mt Gravatt East is Bonner’s small business of the year, Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta announced today.
“In the spirit of supporting our local small businesses this Christmas, I recently put out a call for people to nominate one small business in their area that they love and to tell me why,” Mr Vasta said.
“It was great to receive so many messages of support for local businesses, and one stood out above the rest.”
Mt Gravatt East local Gemma Blaney picked Blacksmith as her favourite local business for its friendly staff and affordable and delicious food and coffee.
“Blacksmith has really livened up the street in which they’re located and I think this is great for the local community,” Ms Blaney said.
Ms Blaney received a $150 voucher from Mr Vasta to spend locally this Christmas.
“Thanks to everyone who sent in a nomination in support of their favourite local small business,” Mr Vasta said.
“I can’t wait to drop by Blacksmith for a visit and to meet the wonderful staff who work there.”
“Don’t forget to shop local this holiday season, your support makes all the difference.”
