Buying local is SO important
It's because of this, that Venture Timaru has launched this district wide campaign to encourage our local communities supporting local businesses.
When you invest money in your local economy, you’re not just helping local business owners – you’re also helping yourself. You’re making your town a better place to live in, with a rich character, thriving economy, and tightly knit community.
South Canterbury online business directory
The South Canterbury-wide business directory allows you to list your business for free or search for local suppliers of goods or services. Check out the directory Buylocalsc.nz
SOS Business vouchers
This fantastic website allows you to purchase vouchers for your favourite eatery to use once you can visit them again. It's a great way to let your favourite café know you’re thinking of them during lockdown …even if you can’t go in the door.
