Orange businesses encouraged to register through new online directory

Orange City Council has created a free online business directory, a centralised place for consumers to see which businesses are open and what services are currently available during the current COVID-19 crisis.

As government regulations continue to change and businesses begin to feel the pinch of tighter social restrictions, Orange City Council has designed the online directory to ensure community
members can continue to support the services around them.

Orange Mayor Cr Reg Kidd encourages all businesses within the Orange, Cabonne, and Blayney to register their business information.

Orange could have boutique micro-breweries and small-scale food manufacturers in and around the CBD if proposed changes get the green light.

“This is a chance for businesses to keep their customers up to date on when their store or service is open. At a time when things are very uncertain for a number of owners and entrepreneurs, we as a community need to make sure we are supporting our services at a time when they need us the most,” Cr Kidd said.

Each listing on the directory allows owners the chance to list a detailed description about their business, contact details, opening hours, what offerings and payment options are available, along with any other details that will encourage support from the local community.

Business Orange President Ash Brown said this is a one stop shop for consumers to get up to date information from each business.

“We often see that a simple google search will give us basic information, but at the current time business owners may not think to update information such as their google listing. This new business directory will mean that all local businesses from right around the region are all listed in the one place,” Ash Brown said.

Orange City Council staff will be ringing local business owners to assist them in registering their details. Alternatively, business owners can register themselves online here:
