Cost of Living Win for Davidson Seniors

Friday, 25 January 2019

Davidson seniors can now enjoy more savings with 24 additional local businesses signing up to the NSW Seniors Card program to offer discounted products and services.

Member for Davidson, Jonathan O’Dea said a recent campaign by the NSW Government successfully increased the number of participating businesses statewide by more than 28%, with a total of 137 local businesses now offering discounts to Seniors Card members. 

“Being able to save on the cost of living when you have a fixed income is important and the Seniors Card is bringing more local discounts to our community than ever before,” Mr O’Dea said.

A recent survey of 35,000 Seniors Card members revealed NSW seniors are more likely to try a new business if it offers a Seniors Card discount or deal, and 70 per cent of seniors would return to a business if it offered a Seniors Card discount.

“More than 90 per cent of eligible older people across NSW are Seniors Card members, including 38,761 card holders in Davidson,” Mr O’Dea added.

“I urge all businesses in Davidson to join and see how the Seniors Card program can benefit your business by building a loyal customer base among seniors, while supporting our community.”

Local business, Crown Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning recently joined the program and is now offering a 10% discount for seniors.

“By offering the discount we are helping to create a healthier indoor environment for seniors,” owner of the business, Debbie Hodge said.
