Christmas is on the way, it's time to start Christmas shopping if you haven't and shopping locally is a great way to shop. There are so many reasons for people to shop, first of all, these are local people who own their business in the community and have families who are a part of this community. By shopping local, it stimulates our economy and local businesses help out the community by volunteering, sponsoring, advertising or donating prizes.
"According to a 2017 statistic data 3462 families in Estevan, so if each family spent just $100 more in the city per week that $346200 in one week," explains Jackie Wall, Executive Director for The Chamber Of Commerce. "If you did that in the month of December for just one month, it's over $1.5 million dollars that would be invested back into our community that goes to those businesses who employ local people and who donate locally as well."
Shopping local does not only mean buying clothes it includes groceries locally, eating out locally and supporting local events. Local owners can take advantage of local shoppers by giving their customers an even better shopping experience this holiday season by helping them find exactly what they are looking for. This season help local businesses by shopping locally.
