Shopping local has never been more important than it is this year. This pandemic has resulted in struggles for small businesses, and they need our support! Retailers and restaurants were restricted to online sales, deliveries and curb-side pickups most of the year, and now, with more restrictions looming over us, local business owners are wondering how they will make ends meet during the winter months.
Christmas is a time where we think about our neighbours, giving back to the community, and spreading love and kindness wherever we can. What better way to show some local love than to buy your Christmas gifts locally this year?
Almaguin has so many great places to shop, and you can find some unique items if you know where to look for them! We have compiled a great list of gifts for everyone on your checklist this year.
Don’t forget the Stocking Stuffers! At Sundridge Foodland, you can find chocolates, treats, gift items, and small toys perfect as stocking fillers. You may want to pick up something for Christmas dinner while you are there.
Shopping Local is so important this year, and now that we have put together this list, it’s never been easier. There are even more great local places to explore and shop at beyond this list, so be sure to email us a review to firstname.lastname@example.org of your favourite local business to win a $100, and follow our Facebook page @ShopinAlmaguin for more great contests and local inspiration!
