AFTER eight weeks and seven $100 weekly giveaways, the winner of the major prize of the Buy Local Love to Shop competition from The Northern Star and Harvey Norman Lismore has been found.

Sue Farquhar of Mullumbimby was the lucky winner of the $5000 spending spree at Harvey Norman Lismore, and she said she was very surprised by the wonderful news.

I had just totally forgotten about it, to be completely honest," Mrs Farquhar said.

"That's very exciting!"

The win came just in time for her husband's birthday, which just happens to be today, she revealed.

So what will she buy with the $5000?

"I immediately think, well, I need a new washing machine, but that's a bit boring, isn't it?" she laughed.

Bill Kennedy, the franchisee for Harvey Norman Furniture and Bedding Lismore drew out the winning ticket.

He said he was very pleased to be part of the promotion and glad to see $5000 of spending money going to someone to enjoy.

"I'm very happy; it's always nice to give something away," Mr Kennedy said.

He said he couldn't wait to see what the winner will spend the money on, whether it be a computer, TV, lounge, dining set, or any number of things they have to offer at Harvey Norman.

The Northern Star Regional Newspaper Sales Manager, Kellie Creighton, who had overseen the whole competition, said it was great to see so many people getting involved and entering.

She said it was a great way to involve local people with local businesses, and had enjoyed seeing people connecting with the message of Buy Local.
