From the local florist to your neighbourhood butcher, businesses in our community have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Greater Geelong developed the It’s Our Backyard campaign to inspire our community to back Geelong and think local first when seeking goods and services.
Let’s all think, shop and support local first – because every local purchase, big or small, makes a difference to our community.
Many businesses have found innovative ways to continue serving the community safely while adhering to COVIDSafe restrictions.
Keep reading to find out more about how local businesses are adjusting their services to stay open and keep their customers and teams safe.
Visit It’s Our Backyard to read more about the campaign and download free promotional images to help get the ‘support local’ message out.
And please always remember to abide by COVIDSafe restrictions when you’re supporting local business.
