Support Small & Local Businesses

Support Small & Local Business

As the number of cases of the novel coronavirus increases throughout Australia and in-fact the world, and with the federal government and state officials discouraging face-to-face contact, many local small businesses are fearing an economic impact.

Officials agreed that by limiting large gatherings—as well as encouraging people to wash their hands regularly, to avoid sick people, and to stay at home if they're not feeling well—the spread of COVID-19 could potentially be curbed.

However, with the cancellation of large events, markets & festivals and with patrons choosing to stay home, local businesses will be affected. For many, these events are a families’ sole source of income.

 

Shop Local – In Person

Many local stores and restaurants are taking extra steps to sanitise their businesses and encouraging customers to practice ‘social distancing’ through methods such as tap & go when paying.

Many physical stores also employ staff who would be absolutely delighted to see customers still coming through the doors for that extra touch of reassurance.

Shop Local - Online

However, for customers who do not want to visit stores or restaurants in person, why not consider the following recommendations:

  • Shop online or via phone. While some stores already have online shopping, others will be more than happy to help customers order via phone or FaceTime.
  • If you typically use local businesses to fill wholesale orders, place those requests as soon as possible.
  • Buy gift cards to use at a later date to support businesses now, even if you don't currently need anything.
  • Order takeout or delivery – The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention have stated there is currently “no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.”

Where To Shop

There are tons of places to amazing local talents to support. Check out your local markets’ Facebook & Instagram pages for ideas. You can also put in a call to your local Chamber of Commerce to point you in the right direction.

And of course, it would be remiss of us not to give a shout out to the small businesses who support us throughout the year. Check out our incredible stockists, and find one near you, by using our Stockist Locator here.

The coming weeks (possibly months) aren’t going to be fun for small businesses, but with our support they will still be around when all of this settles down.

Look out for each other, be amazing & stay safe.
