FAQ

-What is IALM?

-IALM is an Interactive Digital Download Magazine where I showcase NZ small businesses- most of them run by mummy's like us!

-Why do you do this?

-I know first hand how devastating the effects of Covid were on small businesses, after having to close down my product based business - I wanted to use my spare time wisely. So I came up with a random idea to showcase the already existing brands. NZ is predominantly made up of small businesses..they keep our economy thriving.

-How do I download the magazine?

-After checking out and completing your purchase, you will be sent an instant link to download your copy of the magazine. Please check your spam folder if you don't see it within 24hrs. Or contact me via email at localmummy@yahoo.com if you need help gaining access into your copy. 

-I've downloaded the mag, what now?

Before getting comfy & delving deep, I recommend printing out the colouring in pages included in the mag to help keep the kiddies occupied so you can really soak in the stories of Our Local Businesses.

-I've seen hoodies on your page..what's that about?

We all know it takes a village to raise a child, but often that village doesn't exist-

With our Motherhood-ie collection, we have something tangible to snuggle with to remind us we are never alone! 

We are also helping raise money for The Mum's Clique Charity, with every other pre-order, $5 from each sale gets donated. TMC are on a mission to open up Motherhood Haven Centres across NZ. What a perfect fit for a Motherhoodie collection right?? So far, the LMT has raised over $600 for TMC! 

-What is a pre-order?

Instead of printing hoodies to have in stock, a pre-ordered item is only made once it's been paid for. This is a really cost effective way for us to access our own apparel without having any wastage of funds, or items. 

Pre-ordered stock usually takes between 1-3 weeks to arrive. But this timeframe should be used as a guide only as the apparel is coming from a third party and stock take is completely out of my control. 

If you have any queries regarding your order please don't hesitate to reach out to me and I will send you the most recent updates I have.
