Shop Local Initiative

By Paul Nees
Lane Cove residents will have noticed an alarming number of local businesses closing over the past year with a weak economy combining with the closure of Rosenthal car park for redevelopment causing weakness in localshopping appetite. This week we saw the closure of well loved Big Barra Seafoods, which leaves yet another space in the Lane Cove Market Square.
In this weekly edition I would like to depart from my usual market commentary to encourage residents to support locally owned businesses. Restaurant and cafe quality in Lane Cove is top notch but they need our support to survive and thrive. One way to do this is to consider the Lane Cove Gift Card, it’s a council initiative to encourage the community to shoplocally as part of its ongoing Love Where You Shop Lane Cove campaign. The gift card can be used in around 75 localshops including cafes, restaurants, clothing shops and beauty shops and can be purchased in the following locations:
  • Cellarbrations at Lane Cove
  • Found Gifts and Homewares
  • Iris & Lin
  • Lane Cove Council Civic Centre
  • Porter’s Liquor Northwood
  • Smart Bargains
  • Spotted Orchid
  • Xara Skin Clinic
