Check out over 2000 love letters sent to local BC Businesses as part of the #BCBuyLocal week holiday contest. Look up your favourite local business and see what other fans had to say.
Spending with a local business has ripple effects that contribute to the growth and health of the communities in our province. Local businesses enhance our community, connect and support us socially, and enhance wealth and employment by circulating dollars many times between businesses.
Locally owned businesses circulate more dollars in the community compared to multinational organizations because:
- Local business owners live and provide jobs in your community.
- Local businesses provide more support for local events, sports teams and charities.
- Local businesses are more likely to buy local services and can stock local products.
For every $100 spent with a BC local business, $46 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $18 for multi nationals).
Show local businesses some love….look for local wherever you shop.
