We love independent businesses here at We Are Cardiff. They make up the soul of the city. At the moment loads of these businesses are super vulnerable, so below is a list of ways you can support some of the city’s indies!
This page will be updated regularly and things are changing every minute (!) so please comment on this post if you think something needs to be added or removed.
LOCAL BUSINESSES – HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT!
INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES – BY LOCATION
I’ve done this list by location just to make it easier for you to see who’s local to you. Some businesses are delivering across the city, some only within a small radius, some are streaming services online. Please check with the businesses for full deets. If you are going into these stores, remember – only shop for essentials, don’t stockpile, don’t be a dick, PLEASE RESPECT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES ON SAFE INTERACTIONS IN RETAIL ENVIRONMENTS. KEEP 2 METRES AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE, USE CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS IF YOU CAN ETC. AND WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
Multiple locations / delivery only
