A new website has been launched to help communities find out which small businesses are open and also who are providing vital supplies in their area during the coronavirus lockdown.

Explore NI is being rolled out across Northern Ireland this weekend, offering a lifeline to shoppers and companies.

A spokesperson for Explore NI said;

“Covid-19 has been heartbreaking for small businesses and, while many have been forced to close, others have found a way to adapt and offer new services that help people in their hour of need.

Explore NI is a celebration of that resilience and a call to the public to make the best of the amazing businesses on their doorsteps and to help them survive. Lockdown is an awful thing to endure, but the army of independent shops and restaurants offering to deliver hot meals, wine, fresh fish, cheese, meat, veg and pastries to your door will certainly make it more bearable. Not forgetting freelance services such as accountants, legal services, web developers, and taxi drivers etc who are also still working.”

Concluding they said “We constantly see images in the news of people queuing for big supermarkets, which can only increase infection rates. Small businesses are well stocked and they’re moving heaven and earth to bring supplies to you so you can stay home!”

Listing a business is free and in the first instance should follow online documentation at https://business.exploreni.com to get started.
