*  Credit for part of the initial Sea Point Opening List  to Chris von Ulmenstein.

Note that I have checked who is open in Camps Bay.   

So while this list is inspired by Chris starting a Camps Bay list it is a list of open businesses and she does not own whether people are open and operating.  This list is to inspire people to support their local businesses over the hardest time they have ever faced.  Our sense of community and sharing is really important over this time.   Support small businesses.   Share this information with everyone you know – far and wide.
