Honouring our Seniors: North Balwyn Village celebrates October seniors month

A big hearty and warm welcome to all Seniors in our community. The North Balwyn Village Traders Association and all the businesses at the Village welcome you to our shopping precinct.

In a warm display of our community spirit and appreciation of all your contributions to society over the years many of our traders are offering seniors a 5% discount and up to 10% on purchases this month.

All you have to do is ask the trader if they are offering a discount on purchases during Seniors’ Month at North Balwyn Village.

North Balwyn Village recognizes and cherishes the senior citizens of our community.

Throughout this month of October, our vibrant shopping strip has come together to celebrate the wisdom, experience, and contributions of its senior residents.

We would love to hear your stories of life and growing up around Melbourne’s eastern suburbs and the changes you have seen or what you remember about the shops at North Balwyn Village. If you have a story to share please call or email the North Balwyn Village marketing coordinator Yolanda Torrisi through the contact page of the North Balwyn Village website: https://balwynnorthvillage.com.au/contact-us /

Our North Balwyn Village shopping precinct, nestled in the heart of Melbourne, has always been known for its close-knit and inclusive community. This year, we want to go over and beyond to ensure the Seniors in our community are made to feel very special.

North Balwyn Village traders are always keen to offered exclusive discounts and promotions to seniors at various stores and eateries. Out local businesses have enthusiastically joined in, recognising the importance of seniors to the community and wanting to show our appreciation.

The North Balwyn Village shopping precinct’s dedication to Seniors Month is a lovely example of how a close-knit community can come together to celebrate and honour our senior members.

The North Balwyn Village Traders show our spirit of appreciation to all seniors in our community and placing importance on the work you have done to pave the way for future generations.
