Shop Local

OUR RURAL ADVANTAGE

The Local Movement

Buying from local businesses can significantly boost a community’s ability to withstand economic downturn, and many communities across the nation are becoming increasingly aware of this.

This is because the bulk of the money you spend at local businesses goes directly back into the local economy, in turn driving tourism, consumer choice, and even the value of your home.

SHOP LOCAL

When people shop locally, they support their community. For every $100 spent at locally owned businesses, approximately $68 will stay in the community.

KNOW LOCAL

Locally owned businesses regularly employ friends and neighbours and have a vested interest in knowing how to serve the community.

EXPERIENCE LOCAL

One-of-a-kind businesses influence the character of small-town Alberta, and entrepreneurs are more likely to invest and live in communities that support local.

APPRECIATE LOCAL

Local businesses donate more per sales dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams than chain stores. They invest in the community and its future.
