As global supply chains struggle, large national brands are showing the strain and many things that we have taken for granted have proven fragile in the face of this unprecedented crisis.
Now is the time to look closer to home - support our local suppliers, shops and businesses. Help them to weather the crisis so that they, in turn, can support you.
Ashburton's independent traders and businesses are pulling together to support the town and community. Many are changing their businesses to meet current needs, or finding other ways in which to support the community.
"Ashburton's businesses are open and here to help you!"
In return they need your continued support - head over to ashburton.shop and support Ashburton's independent traders!
