#BCbuyLocalWeek is our province’s response to the Black Friday / Cyber Monday shopping frenzy to the south.
Choosing to buy from a local business has knock-on effects that contribute to the economic health and vibrancy of the communities where we live. When you buy at a multinational, it is estimated that $18 of every $100 spent gets re-spent in the local community. Over 2.5 times that amount, $46, gets re-spent in the local community when you buy from a local business.
Being a strong supporter of local businesses, Artisan Farmer’s Markets have added thirty local businesses to the Lonsdale Quay Market for this weekend only! #ChristmasAtTheMarket
