In the Cove has always been a passionate supporter of buying local and supporting local. You should see ITC’s credit card, jam-packed with local purchases (probably more than Mr ITC would like).
If you are working and in a position to support local businesses they would love it.
Our local independent businesses are mainly owned by Lane Cove locals and they employ locals. If we don’t support them now we will have a ghost town and a vibrant Lane Cove is a good Lane Cove
It’s hard being a small local business at any time but it is tougher now. Our local businesses are adapting and many of then are offering online ordering. If you need a gift for a birthday or to cheer someone up here is how to order online or give someone a gift certificate to use later.
If local a Lane Cove business does not have an online store, there’s always the option of calling them and ordering via phone.
The number one rule is Stay Home – if you need some items that are not “essential” then order online.
Here are local businesses you can shop with online or email and they will deliver.

If your child attends a dance school or is thinking of attending a dance school, they will need dance uniforms. This can be a costly exercise, particularly if your child only decides to dance for one term or likes it so much they want to do ballet, jazz and hip hop (all with different uniforms). Lane Cove Local Alison Bird had this exact problem when she had three girls who danced. Alison founded balletstuff.com.au and now sells affordable dance uniforms for kids online throughout Australia and has a retail store in Lane Cove. You can read about Alison here.
Hidden at the Rosenthal Car park end of Atrium Plaza, Ballet Stuff stocks very reasonable priced dance and gym gear. Their Best Seller Ballet Pack – which includes shoes, leotard, tights & skirt – is a really affordable way to get the entire outfit. This pack contains premium quality dancewear drastically cheaper than you will find in any retail outlet.
Previously In the Cove has featured local entrepreneur Toni Bofinger who spotted a unique US product Mr Lid and had become the local distributor.
Lost lids & mismatched containers a thing of the past thanks to this Lane Cove based mum!

Now with us eating at home (all the time) we are probably cooking more and making up large batches of food that need to be stored.
Mr Lid to the rescue.
Mr Lidw will offer all Lane Covians free shipping with any purchase from Mr. Lid. (Inc surrounding suburbs). Code to use would be ITCFREESHIP. Minimum Spend $20
