Pay it forward by supporting local
I try to support local businesses as much as I can. If you don’t add
local elements, you can start to look like any other store. We’re in
the process of coming up with a phone app and marketing plan to help promote keeping it local, because it keeps those smaller communities alive. I’m watching too many little businesses die around New Zealand. People need to be more conscious about where they’re buying; they don’t realise that shopping online from overseas means those beautiful little stores, those hubs of the community, are disappearing.
