Get online and shop local
With the Covid-19 outbreak, a lot of people are self-isolating and doing their best to distance themselves from other people, but we can’t forget to support our local businesses.
If there’s one thing we’re worried about during this Covid-19 outbreak, it’s the effect it could potentially have on our local businesses. From cafes and restaurants to retail spaces and fitness and wellbeing spaces, our Newcastle community still needs to support those small businesses that rely on our dollars to pay the bills.
Check out our list below of businesses changing things up to keep their heads above water during this tough time.
