5 Ways you can help small businesses in South Africa survive the Coronavirus epidemic

How will the COVID-19 Virus affect small businesses?
Many people rely on their small home businesses for their daily income. Unlike big businesses and corporations - taking a loss during the corona virus outbreak would eat into a small business owner's livelihood. So how can you help small businesses stay afloat during these devastating times?

Shop at local online stores

The best part is you can shop from the comfort of your own home as most online stores deliver to your door. At Lootsin we provide the option of a courier to your door for an additional fee of R80.

Buy gift cards

Purchasing a gift card to your favorite shop, theater or restaurant is an immediate way to put cash into the business. Want to buy a gift card for yourself or a friend to do a bit of thrift shopping in the near future, click here.

Not sure what precautions your favorite local brand is taking towards cleanliness?

Send your favorite local brand an email to gain clarity on how they are tackling the scenario of being the tidiest local brand in town. Here at Lootsin cleanliness has always been a big priority for us. Every garment is washed after it has been sourced and washed again after it has been photographed. When garments are being packaged, hands are washed and gloves are worn at all times.
At the end of the day, we are all in this together and will need to lend each other a helping hand of support. Choose to directly take care of your South African community. Choose to support us and buy from our small business.
