Local lockdown luxuries: how to treat yo’self and support small business at the same time

Posted on

Yep, lockdowns are a really rough time for all of us—but they’re particularly challenging for local small businesses trying to stay afloat.

By shopping locally and supporting Canberra-based folks, you’re investing in the dreams and livelihoods of our city’s creative and hard-working small business community.

Looking for a little (or large) way to treat yo’self or your loved ones for making it to the halfway mark? Compiled by the wonderful peeps at Canberra co-working space Keep Co, here’s a massive list of local legends—small businesses you can help out whilst helping yourself with some lockdown luxuries available for COVID-safe delivery or pickup. Simply click on their Instagram handle to explore all they have to offer!

Many local ‘non-essential’ businesses can trade online but can’t deliver or offer click and collect at the moment because restrictions don’t allow. We’ve included some of these and highly recommend you add to cart now so you can enjoy them when things open up again!
