Calling all Kāpiti Coasters to back local businesses and #lovelocal
Our local businesses need your support now more than ever.
Many of our incredible local businesses deliver and have online stores.
Support your local suppliers, top up your shopping at your local dairy, buy music from local musicians on Bandcamp, buy books by local authors.
The best thing about the Kāpiti Coast has always been its people. We’re caring, we’re welcoming and inclusive, we support one another. Let’s show how we can come together as a community, even when we’re unable to do that physically.
There are a number of websites dedicated to sharing local businesses, check them out below and list your online shop or business information:
delivereat.co.nz - a directory of independent kiwi businesses delivering during the COVID-19 lockdown
SOS Cafe - Buy a voucher now, redeem from your local later. A not-for-profit initiative supporting local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic
Shop It Forward - small businesses are the backbone of the economy. So while online businesses can't use couriers right now to get products to you, we are asking kiwis with the means to spend to support small businesses and SHOP IT FORWARD! Those companies you support will arrange delivery of your goods as soon as it’s legal and safe (stay patient NZ!), and in the meantime you'll be keeping New Zealand working.
