Red, White & Local Friday

In the last number of years, Canadians have fully embraced the American tradition of Black Friday shopping. That one day of the year when people shop with wild abandon, line up at 4am to get a big screen tv and get a jump start on their Christmas shopping.

We like a bargain as much as the next person, but before you plan out your day, why not check with local merchants first as many of them have their own Black Friday plans. By doing so you help to keep money circulating in our community, & making us all stronger as a result.

Look for hashtag #RedWhiteAndLocal on twitter, Facebook or Instagram for deals on Friday from some of your favourite local merchants.

Small Business Saturday

Whether you take part in Friday’s shopping festivities or not, Saturday is a kinder, gentler form of Holiday shopping. On Saturday dozens of local merchants will be rolling out the red carpet for you. Think cider, cookies, music, demonstrations, & leisurely egg nog lattes with your friends.

We’ve got a lot of I Love Local businesses taking part in Small Business Saturday – so head downtown & explore, or look for #SmallBizSatHFX on twitter, facebook or Instagram.

Saturday is a throwback, a day when our main streets and our downtowns are bursting with people.

Hit the Saturday markets and then continue your day in your favourite boutique, grab a coffee or tea in your favourite cafe and have dinner or a cocktail in one of our fantastic local restaurants and bars.
