A new campaign has been launched to help New Zealand businesses recover from the severe impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Currently, only essential businesses are allowed to operate but at the lower alert level, any business deemed “safe” will be allowed to reopen – provided all face-to-face contact is avoided. Delivering online shopping to customers will now also be allowed.
To help some of the businesses and retailers get back off the ground, a campaign called #shopkiwi has been started, allowing New Zealand companies to sell products directly to consumers online.
“New Zealand businesses have been waiting with bated breath to find out when they can reopen, and they need all the help they can get,” Buy NZ Made executive director Ryan Jennings said.
Businesses that join the #shopkiwi campaign will be added to a list so Kiwi consumers can find and shop at their online stores more easily.
