We are overwhelmed with gratitude for every person who walked through our door and clicked through to our website this year. It means so much to us that customers chose to shop local and support our business. Below are five ways you made an impact by shopping local.
Because you shop local…
Local jobs are available
Local businesses create jobs which are held by local residents. Spending your money locally helps strengthen the local economy.
Neighbourhoods remain vibrant
Vacant store fronts are terrible for the vitality of a community. Shopping local keeps retail spaces occupied and brings people to neighbourhoods like the Exchange District. Local stores keep neighbourhoods vibrant, strong and desirable.
Exceptional customer service is provided
The existence of brick-and-mortar stores allows for a personable shopping experience. We can assist in customizing product, give professional advice and have repairs done while you wait in store.
You can find completely unique products
Local shops infuse neighbourhoods with diverse products and flavour. One-of-a-kinds and items you will not find anywhere else can often be found in local shops.
Dreams come true
You are supporting the dreams of artists, creators and entrepreneurs every time you enter a local shop.
