In the lead up to our $5000 Golden Ticket buy local promotion prize draw we have been chatting to some of the 22 local businesses featured in this year’s competition. This week we had a chat to Samantha Stocks of Stocks Gifts and Gallery Castlemaine.

Samantha Stocks reopened the doors to her popular Mostyn Street business this week just in time for Mother’s Day much to the delight of local community members.

Samantha is also the operator of neighbouring businesses women’s fashion outlet Ivy and Grace and leading fashion brand store aolita (formerly Dalrene on Mostyn).

The local businesswoman said it has been a tough few months for her businesses and staff but they are looking forward to having all three shops reopened from Monday.

Meanwhile Stocks Gifts and Gallery is packed full of Mother’s Day gift ideas for Sunday. See the Mail for the full story. Out now.
