Opportunity – Local Spotlight Program


Coastline Credit Union is committed to providing local artisans, producers and designers with an opportunity to showcase their products. Merchandise can be sold by Coastline staff and all proceeds are returned directly to the business. There is no cost to the business and they don’t have to be a Coastline customer although our goal is to be able to assist the business with their banking needs in the future.

A key requirement is that the business makes tangible goods, does not have a shopfront to market their product and operates in the Port Macquarie Shire. Items showcased will ideally be creative and original works, independent designs or products of a unique, handmade nature.

The pilot site for our Local Spotlight is Port Macquarie Branch located at Settlement City Shopping centre. Taree and West Kempsey stores are also on board  with th program

The Local Spotlight area is perfectly positioned at the entrance to the store and highly visible during store trading as well as afterhours.

The Local Spotlight will be running for a year where artists are asked to set up a display for 2 weeks in our branch and staff will help to sell products and promote the individual. The business is responsible for working with Coastline team to set up a visually appealing display.

This program is very popular with only 3 dates left for the rest of 2017 as follows:

  • 09/10/2017-20/10/2017

The program will continue in 2018 where all 2 week periods are available until the end of the year
