It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or is it? Do you stress over the Holidays? Running around trying to find the perfect gift only to settle on something generic?
When you shop at small businesses, you not only get more unique products, you often find products that were made close to home, or you are dealing with business owners who are making a big impact in our Community.
This year, when you Shop Small, you’ll also have plenty of chances to win a little something for yourself! Check out the list of businesses below – visiting each one of them will give you a chance to win one of 35 prizes, all to be drawn for on December 23.
So, head out on the streets, visit your favourite local shops & restaurants and ENJOY the Holidays!
