How you can support Scenic Rim businesses

While there are few positives about the leadership style of the late General Electrics CEO Jack Welch, one of his quotes generally rings true.

“Change before you have to.”

All across the Scenic Rim, businesses didn’t get the chance to adhere to such advice as the Covid-19 pandemic forced changes on how they operate almost overnight.

Almost every business is having to change the way they work.

In the end, it will come down to communities banding together to weather the effects of this virus.

This week and in the coming weeks, Federal Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz and State Member for Scenic Rim, Jon Krause, have sponsored a page in the paper and online that will give locals the opportunity to advertise how locals can still support them.

The Fassifern Guardian has matched this, free of charge, listing as many local businesses as possible and how to do business with them.

It’s not business as usual but there is still business to be done.
