Be kind to business

Be kind to business

Many local businesses are doing it tough during the current restrictions. By shopping locally, you are not only supporting small businesses, you are also supporting local job growth and helping to build strong, vibrant communities.

Here are some ways you can continue to support local businesses while maintaining social distancing recommendations:

  • shop locally at one of our community and local shopping centres
  • consider ordering online and having your order delivered
  • purchase locally made goods
  • interact with small businesses via social media to show your support ie comment on or like their posts
  • purchase gift cards and gift vouchers
  • order takeaway
  • explore what businesses are offering online.
