Von-Routte's Get the Jab, Get 20 Percent Off
Bondi sneaker brand Von-Routte is encouraging vaccination by offering anyone who has had the jab 20 percent off sneakers.
With small businesses relying so heavily on the vaccine rollout to get Australians out of lockdown, many are encouraging everyone to go out and get their first jab with freebies and discounts. Marrickville brewery Hawke's supplied 250 free slabs to freshly vaccinated Sydneysiders, while the Bald Rock Hotel is offering anyone who's received both shots free pints. Bondi sneaker brand Von-Routte is joining the drive to encourage vaccination by offering anyone who has been vaccinated 20 percent off its sneakers.
The promotion is valid on all full-priced items from Friday, July 30 until the end of Sydney's lockdown and is open to all Australians. All you have to do is DM the brand on Instagram with your proof of vaccination and you'll receive a personalised coupon to use online.
Von-Routte is imploring other businesses to join the charge and offer vaccinated Aussies discounts. "The more people are vaccinated, the faster we can be back to "normal". If every business copies this idea — which they are welcome to — we could, significantly, motivate people to accelerate the vaccination rate. It's better for everyone: businesses, people and the economy," Von-Routte Co-Founders Gus Agra and Marina Tokarski said.
The Bondi brand prides itself on creating ethical sneakers that last and offers customers the opportunity to bring their shoes in for a complimentary clean to give sneakers a refresh. You can browse its selection at the Von-Routte website.
