The centre is excited to announce that the pick-up service is now operational and the delivery service will commence next week.
This means for vulnerable residents within the community that they can still enjoy the food and beverages which they once sat down for at the centre in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Riley Pearce of the Panthera Group which manages Terrace Central told News Of The Area, “The delivery service will operate in a 10-15 kilometre radius from the centre.”
The online platform was developed to offer support to all the small businesses in the food sector within the centre, all of which have suffered through COVID-19 restrictions.
The offering has been well received by the tenants as it will potentially assist businesses to keep operating in times when there are less people in the shops and it will also help keep employees on their books.
The centre has been working hard on delivering for tenants with the new ecommerce strategy as well as renovating during the pandemic which will see a new children’s playground and outdoor seating area opening in coming months.
The online platform for food and beverages is the start of a growing movement for Terrace Central with the centre planning to offer a complete online shopfront for all the businesses in the centre.
Instead of ordering something online from someone you don’t know, you can order it from the same local business which you have always dealt with and know that your money is keeping locals in jobs.
“We wanted to support the local community and believe that providing an offering where the community can use online shopping to support their local businesses is an exciting way forward,” she said.
Proud Hospitality Group Director, Oliver Primes said, “Proud Hospitality Group is proud to be partnered with Rivershop to provide a Click and Collect service for our customers at Terrace Central.
“We understand the importance of providing the best service offerings and launching Rivershop delivery in the next few weeks will be a great addition to the Raymond Terrace community.”
“Rivershop has worked closely with us to expand on the community offering and reach; we are excited for customers to taste our newest meals at Melts N More, Hunter Seafood Shack, Proud Rooster and Wok This Way, now available at Terrace Central.”
Leah Anderson President of Tomaree Business Chamber (which also supports Raymond Terrace and out of area businesses) told News Of The Area, ”If businesses in Raymond Terrace would like support they can reach out to Tomaree Business Chamber for help and support.”
She believes that initiatives like this are really innovative and what we are looking at, finding ways that we can do things differently to still deliver products and services and keep people employed while keeping consumers happy.
