The importance of shopping locally

Small business owners are the heart and soul of the Canadian economy. In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character have an economic advantage. Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, make more local purchases which require less transportation, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.

 

Love where you live, shop local. 

 

Studies have found that local businesses generate much greater benefits for the local economy than national chains do. Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy. Shopping locally is designed to help you find and support independent local businesses and invest your shopping budget wisely in your local community.

TOGETHER, WE CAN REMIND CANADIANS WHY SHOPPING LOCAL MATTERS.
