Canadian fashion is on the rise and has been for years; with upcoming designers and unique fashions it’s hard to resist. Shopping local isn’t just cool but it’s good for the community too. From improving the economy to helping the environment, every little bit counts.
HELP CREATE JOBS
When shopping local you help provide a chain of jobs throughout the community. Not only are you helping to create in-house employees, but local companies often source their materials from nearby vendors, independent shops, and even local farms.
KEEP YOUR MONEY IN THE COMMUNITY
Shopping local ensures your dollar goes back into the cities economy and other small businesses. While franchises may save you a couple bucks, it’s at the cost of economic displacement. Shifting sales from one city to another, much of your money spent leaves the community immediately.
We know you’re tired of spending money on clothes everyone already owns. Shopping one-of-a-kind businesses is an essential part of making your community different. Whenever you are shopping from local businesses, you get to enjoy the “unique-factor.” The places you visit and the stores you shop all define your city and yourself, as a distinct character
KNOW WHERE YOUR PRODUCTS ARE COMING FROM
Believe it or not, local businesses assist in environmental sustainability, by recycling their earnings back into other local companies; they indirectly reduce pollutants, air and water toxins. More importantly, big corporations are at the forefront of sourcing their products overseas, it’s time to keep the jobs at home.
