#OpenforGeelong: Local businesses open for delivery, takeaway + online shopping through COVID-19

At the Mainspring we have built our community to support the creatives, entrepreneurs and small businesses of our region who inspire us daily. We still want to do that through these unprecedented times.

This is an evolving list of the local businesses who have been able to adapt to the most recent announcements from the Government. As the situation is rapidly changing, we hope to keep this page updated as frequently as we can.

For businesses who are able to remain open in some way, we ask you to use the hashtag #OpenForGeelong on Instagram so the community can find you easier. We will also use this hashtag to update this list.

For everyone else, please consider supporting these businesses wherever possible. They need our help in these challenging times to keep local jobs and put food on the table for their own family at home.

Please practice social distancing at this time, regularly wash your hands and avoid touching anything you don’t need to. If you are unwell, do not leave your house. Ordering online with delivery is the best way to ensure a contact-less way of supporting local businesses.

We are always together, even apart.

Please note: Click the business name to be taken to their socials.
