That’s right beauties, boutique shopping is back…not that we ever thought it was out.
I’m sure we all agree that 2020 has felt like it’s been in constant full moon phase with an erratic virus causing chaos all over the world, and with this changing world what we once took for granted we now miss dearly. We miss big hugs, crowds, the excitement of airports and most of all we miss shops.
The shopping malls came to life in the 1950s and have been quite popular since but things are changing in these unprecedented times and we are turning to our local small businesses that are usually amongst great cafes with an old post office. Mostly due to lockdowns and shutdowns we are not travelling far from home to get what we need and are beginning to appreciate the personal customer service, the unique stock and the familiar faces behind the counter. Thanks to working from home and social media these beautiful stores are getting the recognition they deserve and the support that they need.
The hard work that goes into these boutique stores is finally getting noticed. These small boutiques have heard what you need, they have listened to what you like, and they have delivered…they always have.
If you haven't started supporting them, now is the time. It will be a while before we can hit the crowds so instead head over to the suburbs, grab a coffee from that hip cafe, pick up dinner from the grocer and pop into the boutique for some retail therapy or do it all online. Whatever you prefer, your support will forever be needed and loved.
