Kapiti Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s De­cem­ber, of­ten the time that is a boon for re­tail­ers.

How­ever, the Novem­ber earth­quakes have meant that many places around the re­gion are closed, cov­ered in scaf­fold­ing or hard to get to.

The dan­ger of this is that we will be tempted to drive fur­ther afield to do Christ­mas shop­ping or stock up for the hol­i­days.

It is hard times like these when it is more im­por­tant to sup­port our lo­cal re­tail­ers and en­sure they sur­vive.

The last thing we want is to get back from the beach and find some of our favourite shops gone for good.
