Happy Boxing Day! #ShopLocal
Happy Holidays from all of us here at the Barrhaven BIA! Now that the gifts have been opened and the food has been eaten, you may be looking to get out and find some amazing boxing day deals! If you are, we ask that you don’t forget our local businesses! Local businesses are the heart of our community, they provide jobs, they support local causes, and they keep our amazing community creative!
In Barrhaven, we are lucky to have over 500 local businesses and we encourage you to explore as you may be surprised by what you find. From gifts to services, our community has everything you need without having to take a longer drive. Shopping local will ensure that these businesses continue to grow along with the community.
Here are our Top 5 Reasons to Shop Local:
- Keep Money In the Community! Our local businesses employ many people within Barrhaven and are often a large part of the local economic stimulus.
- Reduce Your Environmental Impact! If you stay local, you will not be driving as far. Every little bit that we can do to help makes a difference; if you can, even consider walking!
- Character & Prosperity! Our businesses play a large role in the character of our community and businesses play have a large impact on the overall satisfaction with a community.
- Local Non-Profits Also Benefit! Local businesses are often the biggest supporters of local non-profits and charities!
- Support Your Neighbours! Many Barrhaven businesses are owned and operated by members of our community.
