Thank you to Michaels for this great thread idea.

Every night the news is on and sadly it's often more reports about small local business closing, and its gutwrenching.

But not many main stream media platforms see offering help to those that still are open.


So, if you own a small business, work in a small business or know someone who owns one that is still up and running but facing hard times, we want you to give the business a plug in this thread.

As a rule a thumb we don't do advertising on BF, but Chief is right behind this, so please plug away.

You just never know who may need your services.
  • Business name
  • Location
  • Contact info
  • A bit about them and what they do / offer
  • Website link.


And use your Twitter account to ping https://twitter.com/bigfootyblues?lang=en and we will retweet and post in here.


As a community we need to do everything we can to help these small businesses stay open & this is another platform to spread the word.

actually I think I sat outside conway's one time - but really, the pier, beach, carpark are the chosen venues for grease and batter consumption in this country
