Bonfire Chief Marketing Officer, Rene LeMerle, has started a Facebook group for small businesses still open in Perth.
LeMerle said Perth Is Open is a community where businesses (generally in the hospitality, fitness, tourism and arts sectors) that have adapted to the COVID-19 situation can hopefully generate additional support and patronage.
“Times are tight for everyone at the moment, so I was pondering how I could throw a spotlight on the businesses that haven’t had to fold (yet) and were adapting to work through the COVID-19 situation.”
“It was the catalyst for the Perth Is Open community group. It’s a community run project where businesses and members can share offers, products, services and deals to promote local businesses that are doing it tough. If we all work together and support local, we will get through this.”
