Find out which Lismore businesses are open HERE and support our community with flood recovery

Across Lismore a growing number of local businesses are reopening their stores, pop-ups and initial operations.

While the impacts of floods across Lismore and the Northern Rivers region are not to be underestimated and have affected everyone differently, shopping locally is one important way to support our community with economic recovery.

To help you support the increasing array of local stores back in business and to shop local, check out regularly updated details of open businesses via the new ‘What’s Open’ button along with stories on The Lismore App.

You can find an interactive map below to help you find the stores reopening across Lismore CBD, which we are regularly updating. 

What's Open



With support from Lismore City Council through the Business Activation Plan, The Lismore App are sharing an overview of store open hours, CBD and online operations, and insights from business leaders.

The list of what’s open in Lismore is expanding, with food and groceries, health and wellbeing, retail and services, accommodation, along with industrial, technology and rural businesses.


If your Lismore business is open or reopening soon, and you're keen to join the map or have queires about business renewal, please email business@lismore.nsw.gov.au 

You can find the new 'Our Place: Lismore Pop-Up Precinct' on the site of the Harold Fredericks Car Park, between the Quad and Dawson Street in Lismore CBD.  The Lismore Car Boot Market and Channon Craft Market commence at the Precinct in June, with the Lismore Chamber of Commerce and Industry coordinating opportunities for local flood-affected businesses to trade. Along with pop-up businesses and the Sunday markets, the Precinct features the Community Access Point operated by Resilience NSW, along with Service NSW and Services Australia with additional agencies to be announced soon.  

Also designed to benefit local shopping and Lismore community is the Loving Local Gift Card program. While many stores have been flooded, the map of participating businesses is currently being updated featuring a variety of local goods and services.

We will also be sharing more updates and highlights promoting Lismore business community, as we progress with flood recovery and next steps.

Lismore City Council is here to help business throughout the flood recovery process. For current flood information and business support, visit lismore.nsw.gov.au/flood-2022-information and contact business@lismore.nsw.gov.au.
