A Spar in Durbanville, Cape Town, has elected to remove certain items from their shelves in a bit to support neighbouring small businesses during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.
As businesses struggle to survive due to the lockdown and employees around the country lose their jobs and endure pay cuts, Palm Grove Spar is playing its part by lightening the financial burden and uncertainty that comes with it.
The Spar’s owners released a statement on their Facebook page saying that:
- We will be closing our stationary section and asking that you instead support Hein and his team at PenCafe Stationers
- We will remove all Frozen Burger Patties from our shelf and ask that you support Werner and the RocoMamas team when deciding what burger to enjoy
“As owner-run businesses, we, now more than ever, need to support each other.”
