A SPAR in Plettenberg Bay is offering shelf space to help neighbouring stores and restaurants survive the COVID-19 pandemic. This small act of kindness by the grocery store shows a true sense of community love. This is how we get through this economic disaster… together! 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 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.
This truly is an inspiring act, an act that makes us proud to be South African… and we hope to see many other businesses follow suit!
