Hello World . As we enter level 4 of lock-down in South Africa, restrictions are being eased somewhat. We can now shop essential winter items, personal protective gear, appliances and a few other items.
In these strange times when we are trying to define our new “normal” I want to ask you all to consider shopping local and help a small business put food on their table. I have put together a list of local brands & NPO’s that I support and that are in my Women in Business network, have a look at these amazing powerhouses and invest your money where it will make a huge difference; the pocket of a small business owner.
Some of these stores & businesses cannot trade at the moment but do have vouchers available or you can purchase your most wanted items now and non-essential items will be shipped after lockdown.
