Businesses in our community have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with many closing doors or laying off staff - just about no one has been immune.
Now that governments have started to ease lockdowns we want to help our community get back in business.
The Lithgow Mercury'sBack in Business guide is a chance for businesses to tell people that they are open and whether there are changes to normal operating hours.
Our community will be able to support businesses while observing social distancing rules.
We will publish and promote this directory on our website.
If your business already submitted an Open for Business listing we will reuse it.
But that isn't all...
What's this about a 'Shout it out' event on Facebook?
The Lithgow Mercury Facebook page is the largest in the region and definitely the largest that isn't a buy, swap and sell page.
We want to leverage that audience to help locals owners promote their business during our 'Shout It Out' Business hour.
What it means is once the post goes up on our page, you can jump in and tell us and the community all about your business, whether it's an online business or you've just opened your restaurant doors, we want you to share it.
These will run every Wednesday for a month and we hope you're keen to jump in.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT - 6pm to 7pm, book it in.
