Local team protecting loyal buyers

BEING active members of the community is Optus Kingaroy’s priority.

Optus Kingaroy manager Michaela Hawkins said the team were recently at the Avocado Festival in Blackbutt, talking with locals to understand their telecommunication needs.

“We believe that being in our local community’s events gives us a chance to understand what is important to our customer and how we can help them in telecommunications and technology,” she said.

When understanding these needs, it also helps that all the staff at Optus Kingaroy are local to the region.

“We all choose to live in Kingaroy because of the community feel of the town, where everyone knows you and everyone looks out for each other,” Ms Hawkins said.

Ms Hawkins has a lot of pride for Kingaroy and believes it’s a great place to bring up a family.

“We believe that rural towns are the historical heart of Australia and we must protect this way of life,” she said.

“So much of the Australian economy is reliant on regional areas like Kingaroy and we need a strong community to keep the local services going.”

Ms Hawkins wants Kingaroy shoppers to know that the staff love supporting the wonderful Kingaroy community.

“As a team we support the local Christmas lights each year. We see it as an opportunity to be with the community that we live in and love,” she said.

While serving a great community presence, the team at Optus Kingaroy also prioritise giving you the best deals they can.

For example, up until November 24, shoppers can enjoy three months free plan fees available when you sign up to new selected mobile plans (not available with other discounts – cancellation fees may apply).

“Come in to our store and visit our friendly staff who are always eager to help,” Ms Hawkins said.
