Supporting our local businesses

02 September 2021

In these times when businesses are doing their best to adapt and stay afloat we wanted to share a little bit of love to some of our favourite local businesses who have been impacted by the extended restrictions.

We hope that by sharing these wonderful small businesses and a small snippet of what they offer and how they are offering it, it will go some way in helping them until they can resume business in a “covid normal” way.

XTEND Barre Manly 

Gina is the XTEND Barre Manly studio owner and is another local who has had to adapt during the lockdown period.  “I’m lucky to be part of a network that offers arguably one of the best national live online @Home exercise experiences available.  We have more than 70 live classes each week an dour members are loving it!” Gina says it has been nice to feel like she is making a positive impact in the local community by getting people moving at home and outside.

“I often do a Circuit 7 class Fridays on the beach and practice my XTEND Barre in the sand after a soft sand run most mornings.  I love my studio and can’t wait to have people back in there!”

Amazema Interiors and Homewares 

The Amazema team are not only our go-to stylists when it comes to styling a property for sale, they also have a Brookvale store that is normally open to the public who can browse the Amazema style for themselves. During these restrictions, the online store can deliver that style straight to your door!

“The Amazema Edit is your one stop shop, where you can shop a selection of our favourite things for your home and body. We hope you love them as much as we do! We are always on the lookout for new things to add to our edit of upscaled essentials, pretty updates and little luxuries for our store, so check back often to see what we have recently found. We are offering free delivery for northern beaches orders and have a 10% off code when they sign up for our newsletter.”
