It’s no secret that 2020 has been a tough year for many local small businesses, particularly those in retail and hospitality.
The Potts Point Partnership, a local community Chamber of Commerce that promotes businesses in Potts Point and surrounds, has launched a fun new campaign to support late-night trade.
Here’s how you can shop late and get a head start on your Christmas gifts, while celebrating the warmer weather and supporting our great local businesses.

The Potts Point Shop Late campaign will showcase the area’s many outstanding retailers and food and beverage providers, in a bid to encourage locals and other Sydneysiders to visit, shop and play during the long, warm spring and summer evenings.
