Narrabri Shire businesses are all affected by the COVID-19 regulations, with some forced to close, some advised to close and others able to trade with limitations.

The spirit of entrepreneurship which has seen our small businesses weather droughts, floods and downturns, remains strong and many businesses are adapting, within the COVID-19 guidelines, to continue trading.

Who is still open for business? Narrabri and Wee Waa Chambers of Commerce are particularly keen to see businesses continue to be able operate in some form.

“We want to give small businesses the opportunity to be included in a data base of businesses which are operating, their hours, their services, are they able to deliver or post product, are they available after hours,” explained Chamber president Russell Stewart.

“If you don’t currently have your doors open are you in a position to take calls and post items?”

“We need a single list so that at a glance people can see what’s open for business and under what conditions.

“This will be a living document which will be upgraded as the situation changes.”

“It is important in times like this that we keep our local small businesses in mind and with that the building of this database is so very important so we can support the businesses in our communities – in whichever way they are operating,” added Wee Waa and District Chamber of Commerce president Ann-Maree Galagher.
