Check out the photo of a sign in front of a local butcher a friend posted on Facebook yesterday. I love the direct and feisty words of this butcher who is making a plea for locals to support their small business and not the big supermarket.
With tougher competition from the supermarket dopily newsagents could engage in a campaign like this – educating shoppers about how Coles and Woolworths are taking business from us and highlighting what shoppers could miss if they ultimately win and see more small business newsagents and other local businesses closed.
We can’t stand by and do nothing. Like this butcher, we need to educate our customers with passion.
