There were lots of smiles on the streets of Kaniva after the local watering hole, the Club Hotel, was featured on Selling Houses Australia.
It came at a good time.
The episode on the renovation of the hotel showcased the town and the pride of its close-knit community, which has bonded even further in the face of the COVID-19 lockdown.
It was important to the hotel's freehold co-owner Jacquie Peterson that the Selling Houses Australia program focused on how great the town was.
"It's a great place to bring up kids, to retire," she said.
"It was a showcase of Kaniva as well as the pub."
Selling Houses Australia airs on Foxtel's Lifestyle Channel, and involves a team of renovators transforming properties already on the market to help them sell.
The Club Hotel was given a new-look bar, eating area and beer garden - complete with mural - and facade.
Ms Peterson said her phone battery had run out twice on Thursday from the number of texts and phone calls she was getting after the screening.
"We've had a fairly good response," she said.
"It was a wonderful experience to be asked to be on the show.
"I can't keep up with all the Facebook messages and texts today."
Ms Peterson, who has owned the freehold with partner John Consadine since 2006, said they were looking to sell the pub to move to the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.
"The pub's still for sale, we haven't found a buyer yet," she said.
"We came really close just before COVID-19 locked us down. Maybe they will still be around.
"With the market the way it is, it's a buyer's market when we do come out the other side of this."
In November, when the program was being filmed, she said that "we sold the lease in March 2018 to someone we thought would eventually buy the freehold, but it didn't work out, so we had to come back in and run the hotel in September last year".
"We put it back on the market pretty much straight away, and a broker contacted us asking if we'd be interested in doing a show for Selling Houses Australia, so we applied and here we are," Ms Peterson said.
They held a grand re-opening on Friday November 29 last year, the revamp having happened in the three days prior.
Ms Peterson joked that she hoped the broker handling the sale had been inundated with calls in the wake of the screening.
Kaniva has continued to support the Club Hotel during the lockdown through takeaway meals - including a popular Thursday schnitzel night - and alcohol sales.
"It's just pretty much locals, but there are a few support workers in town," she said.
"I hope we can come through this and keep afloat."
Ms Peterson said she was looking forward to having a few beers with customers when the restrictions were eased.
"Fingers crossed we'll be back and enjoying a beer in the front bar," she said. "I miss the boys."
