A Plettenberg Bay Spar store stocks items from local businesses to help them survive during pandemic
A Spar store located in Plettenberg Bay announced that it is offering shelf space to help neighbouring stores and restaurants survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
This comes after the other Spar store located in Palm Grove in the Western Cape announced that it would be closing down its stationery section and removed all frozen burgers to help neighbouring stores survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Spar made the announcement via their Facebook page to explain their reasons.
It stated that many South Africans are enjoying Level 4 of the lockdown as they can order food from their local eateries but many restaurants have indicated they will not be opening yet because it is not feasible. The businesses know that they will not be able to pay all their costs by just delivering takeaways, and also not being able to sell alcohol.
The Beacon Isle KWIK SPAR decided that they would create a section to promote the products from local businesses in the area and put a sign up in support.
The company said: “Support our Local Businesses!
All items on this table are supplied by local restaurants. They are still unable to welcome you into their businesses.
KWIK SPAR will not add any markup to these products, and all sales will go directly to them.”
The Beacon Isle KWIK SPAR are currently stocking a large range of products from Zanzos, Ouland Royale, Roost and Clare, four restaurants who are unable to open during the lockdown.
