SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
Author: Sarah @ MetalGear
It's being experienced all over the world; COVID-19 continues to impact all businesses, large and small. Border closures, lockdowns, impacts on import and exports, the list goes on.
At June 30 2020 there were over 2 million actively trading businesses in the Australian economy.* Currently in Queensland, 70% of small businesses reported being very concerned about the survival of their business, a fear that is shared amongst many small businesses all over the country. **
Access to and the availability of parts as well as the rising costs of materials are just two of the greatest issues our industry is facing causing strain to many manufacturers, trade shops and dealers. So how can you support our small business?
It's appealing to go for the cheaper options advertised on Amazon and eBay, and in these times we certainly understand why customers make this choice. But if you're looking to support Australian Businesses, shop local! It may cost a fraction more but you are helping to create jobs and supporting the recovery of our local economy.
