The outbreak of Covid-19 has had a dramatic impact on peoples’ lives. Physical retailers that aren’t deemed essential have been asked to close with no clear indication of when they might re-open.
At the same time, many would-be shoppers are naturally anxious about their futures. But it is not all doom and gloom. The pandemic also presents an opportunity for people to come together and support each other, spreading positivity and a sense of togetherness in a way not seen since the end of WW2.
At DivideBuy, we’ve put together a few simple steps we can all take to support each other during this challenging time.
Now more than ever, you deserve to treat yourself. How you choose to spend your money can make a huge difference for small independent retailers. If you’re financially able to, even a simple chocolate bar can lift your spirits.
Use DivideBuy to purchase something special without damaging your disposable income. From a new bed to gardening equipment, spread the cost over a few months completely interest free.
