Where can businesses go for help?

How customers can help:

  • Keep a small business going by visiting Shop It Forward – this means shopping now and having the patience to wait for your products to be delivered when it is safe and healthy to do so.
  • SOS Cafe – buy vouchers from your favourite cafes and businesses. Buy them now, when these places really need the cash, and get the services later when this whole Covid-19 is a bad memory.
  • Find local businesses that are open using this directory which is currently being managed by 3Mile Coworking Community…/1mXsloCGFoWuUDmyCZVBNG4K7ff…/edit…
  • Keep an eye on Destination Wairarapa for latest businesses operating and other support local initiatives.
  • Remember you will be able to click and collect or have food delivered from lots of our great eateries. Sites and apps like Menulog and Regulr make it easy to find and order.
  • Wellington On a Plate has created an online directory of food and drinks being delivered in the Wellington region so you can find your favourites.
  • Shopping local will help our small businesses bounce back. If you can, we encourage you to support them by making an order online or over the phone. Just remember to maintain your distance if you decide to click and collect.
