Cheers to the Local Entrepreneurs!

We’re big advocates for local business owners, entrepreneurs & franchisees that put their heart and souls into their businesses. They are the lifeblood of our community, the dreamers, doers and job creators.

By shopping local, you keep your money circling the neighborhood. It is better for the economy, for the environment, you’re helping your neighbor, and local businesses typically have a more unique product selection than any of the big-box retailers.

In a study by Civic Economics, they estimate that when you spend $100 locally, $68 stays in your community. Alternatively, when you choose to shop at a non-local business, only $43 stays here. See study here.

This Holiday Season…think about supporting your local businesses instead of ordering online from overseas or driving into Edmonton to shop.
