Over 100 local businesses showcasing their services

Published on 17 April 2020


Over 100 businesses in the Rockhampton Region have registered on the Council’s free COVID-19 Business Directory, ensuring local residents know which local services are operating.

Council’s Economic Development Manager, Jesse Gillard, said it was more important than ever to support our local businesses.

“We truly are living in extraordinary times, and many local businesses are temporarily closed or operating in a totally different way,” Mr Gillard said.

“The business directory is an easy way for residents to find out which businesses are open and what services they’re offering, whether that’s home delivery or take out or different operating hours.

“You can search by suburb or by category depending on what you’re looking for.

“We are regularly promoting the directory on Council’s facebook page, and it’s part of our COVID-19 Community Information Hub which features prominently on our website.”

Mr Gillard said there were many more businesses yet to register and urged them to add themselves to the directory.

“It’s fantastic to have over 100 businesses on there but we know there are plenty more out there.

“Registering only takes a few minutes and is of course totally free, so please - if you or someone you know should be on there, tick it off your to do list today.

“This is just one way we are working to help local businesses. Council, through our Advance Rockhampton team, is regularly talking to businesses and we will continue to support them through these very challenging times.”

“We are backing our businesses one hundred per cent. We’ll get through this and its critical we’re doing all we can to support our local businesses at this time.”
