Glenorchy is Activity City

5 May 2020|Community News| Off Comments off on Glenorchy is Activity City|

GLENORCHY City Council has launched an initiative to ensure businesses in Glenorchy keep on doing, making, selling and serving what they do best.

ACTIVITY CITY is a searchable business directory that lists the area’s best food outlets, artists, makers, grocers, producers and breweries.

Glenorchy businesses can join ACTIVITY CITY for free with the click of a button by providing details and uploading a photo.

Glenorchy businesses have adapted to COVID-19 restrictions in a number of ways, such as changing the products they make, starting delivery services and taking orders online.

ACTIVITY CITY provides businesses with a one stop shop to find and access up to date information on COVID-19 support, including links to government funding and programs that help businesses make the move to digital marketing and online trading.

The platform will highlight a new business every few days to share the range of products and services in Glenorchy.

People can use ACTIVITY CITY to browse the products and services on offer in Glenorchy from the comfort of their living room, as well find out if businesses are open, whether they’re doing deliver and how to order products.

Glenorchy City Council is encouraging residents to buy local to ensure Glenorchy’s shops, cafés, makers and grocers would stay open for business and that sellers could keep their suppliers, staff, tradies and cleaners on the job.

Retailers in Glenorchy employ more than 2000 Glenorchy residents, and by spending one per cent more on retail, the Glenochy economy can boost local trade by $1.6 million.
