free registration during #buylocalweek!
Hey, Vancouver! Get ready to celebrate our local business community because BUY LOCAL WEEK is just around the corner!
An initiative of local business advocacy group LOCO, the Buy Local Week campaign raises awareness of the benefits of buying local to connect consumers – or rather, citizens – to local businesses and promote a more vibrant, sustainable local economy in Metro Vancouver.
Running December 2-8, Buy Local Week reminds shoppers as they comb the city for holiday gifts to spend dollars with independent, locally owned retailers instead of the Big Box multi-nationals.
YOU COULD EVEN WIN PRIZES!
Win a Tofino Getaway (including deluxe accommodations, surf lessons, Modo driving credits), Whistler Getaway, Vancity Gift Card, Burnaby Heights Shopping Spree, and tons more, via LOCO and TheTyee.ca:
All you have to do is send a holiday card to your favorite local business in BC telling them how they made your year bright. Enter here!
Did you know when you choose to spend your dollars locally, for every $100 you spend $46 is re-circulated back into the local economy? Local businesses help our communities thrive. Write a holiday card to your favourite local business today!
