Tips to shopping local
During these extraordinary events for the world with Coronavirus, there's no better time for Coasters to keep calm, carry on, and support our local businesses!
Here are a few ways for you to get behind your favourite local businesses and support local:
The internet is a wonderful thing with which you can still order your favourite food, shop for treats and book activities up and down the Coast.
Couch dinner parties
Let the restaurant come to you. Order over the phone and treat yourself to lamb shank, fish and chips or a cheeky whitebait patty from the comfort of your own home with some mates.
And if you have Netflix, even better, dinner AND a show.
Buy vouchers or gift cards
Birthdays and milestones can be celebrated with vouchers from local shops. Give that special someone a spa pamper package or let them splurge at the local clothing store.
Get ready to explore our backyard
Once New Zealand lifts to Alert Level 2 Coasters can begin to move around the region. What better time to explore our own beautiful backyard?
Be sure to keep an eye out for specials and deals!
