Some of our services are impacted due to COVID-19.


Our community plays an integral part in supporting local businesses, which contributes to a vibrant local economy. By shopping local, you’re not only helping Boroondara businesses, but supporting families, community clubs, organisations and jobs in your neighbourhood. 

Local traders have shared what it means to them when our community chooses to shop locally:

By choosing my store, I can support local schools and charities with their fundraising efforts.
– Michelle

Choosing to shop with me means I can then spend with other local businesses.
– Paul

Choosing my small business means I can invest in its growth and secure my family’s future.
– Joanne

How you can continue to support local businesses

Despite the challenges faced as a result of COVID-19, some businesses continued to operate, with many adapting and diversifying their offerings to keep staff employed and meet the needs of the local community.

As restrictions have eased and businesses reopen, we encourage you to continue to support local businesses by:

  • visiting our diverse range of 53 local shopping centres and strips
  • dining out at your local cafes and restaurants
  • finding a local business near you using the Love Local Life online directory
  • following local businesses online via social media
  • writing a positive online review about local businesses you visit.
