Buy Surf Coast website makes it esay to support local businesses
Published on 30 March 2020
A new website has been launched to make it easy for people to support Surf Coast Shire businesses as they adapt to restrictions currently in place to protect our community from COVID-19.
Many local businesses have made changes to their services to adapt during the pandemic, with many now offering online, “no contact” and delivery options.
The new website www.BuySurfCoast.com.au features an online directory of each town’s businesses and the services they are offering.
Surf Coast Shire Cr David Bell said it was more important than ever to support local businesses.
“We’re all in this together so we need to look out for each other.”
“The impact on businesses has been very tough. How can you help? By buying local wherever you can.”
“We all know how important it is to stay at home at the moment, but it’s also important we all stay connected and the Buy Surf Coast campaign helps bring our community together to enable it to stay strong.”
Cr Bell said many local businesses had been innovative in adapting.
“You can now get fresh produce, meals, books and puzzles delivered to your door. Some local businesses are offering online consultations, even online dance classes.”
“We know how fast things are changing, so as conditions change and businesses continue to adapt, the website will be updated.”
Visitor Information Centre staff in Torquay and Lorne are updating the website daily. Contact details are on the website.
