about buy local noosa.
From its sleepy coastal town days to the thriving tourism hub it is now, one thing has always remained a constant feature of the Noosa community landscape: local business. They are not only the face of Noosa, but its beating, creative and hard-working heart.
Life can be hard for local businesses. Despite the enormous number of fantastic Noosa businesses, Buy Local Noosa’s creator Claire, could see so many in our community were unaware of or simply didn’t look to a local brand first. The lack of local consciousness amongst the Noosa community needed to change. In February 2020, the Buy Local Noosa concept was born to create stronger connections between local businesses and consumers and to act as a platform to showcase small business.
Buy Local Noosa will list and feature local businesses and promote products directly to the neighbourhood. Consumers can trust they are supporting local and in doing so sustain the livelihood of these local businesses, which in turn provides further opportunities for business to pass these benefits on to the greater community.
The success of local business is essential in order for their support of our sporting clubs, charities and events to continue and further, that success creates employment opportunities for the Noosa community. When consumers support businesses, business can support the entire community
love, support noosa.
Claire, a Noosa local, small business owner and Mother of twin boys credits the idea to the wonderful businesses owners who she has admired and supported for many years.
“I love Noosa and I love local business. I know what it’s like to live and work in business here, and I want to support my fellow business owners. More than that, I want to build a stronger community network, where the main goal is to support family, friends, colleagues and workers who run Noosa’s businesses and are employed by them”. Passionate locals are striving to produce the best possible products and services for others in the Noosa area and in doing so, generate an income for their families and a greater sense of self for their community. As consumers, we must support them to support us; that is the essence of Buy Local Noosa.
