Buy local, By Hedland is an initiative coordinated by the Town of Port Hedland in response to the economic fallout of COVID-19. Right across Australia, small businesses are feeling the impacts of mandated closures, particularly across the hospitality and tourism sectors. Once bustling cafes, restaurants and gyms have had to shut up shop for the foreseeable future, as the government seeks to reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission in the community. For many sole traders, their one source of income has been stopped and they’re facing a tough, uncertain and stressful economic future.
Essentially, Buy Local, By Hedland is a business registration and promotional platform for Hedland based sole traders and small and medium sized businesses. By filling out an electronic form with key details, the Town will then provide promotional support for your business and write a profile which will be published on the Town’s media channels. In particular, we want to highlight how local businesses are adapting to the new environment by innovating their operations to meet the needs of their customer base. The name comes from the desire to encourage local consumption to support local commerce.
