Fall for Business – Light Up Squamish

Winter heralds in a time of transition and invites us to embrace the energy of change.

Sensing a Shift

It’s been a tough year all round and especially challenging for small businesses, but we’ve seen the community truly pull together to support and champion one another – and the awareness for shopping locally is on the rise too due to programs such as Fall For Squamish and Light Up Squamish

Support Local

Whether as a business owner, supply chain or end user we can all contribute to growing companies. When considering our local businesses, such as Saha Eatery, Tantalus Bike Shop and Ground Up Climbing, they often go on to foster economic eco-systems that enable other small businesses to thrive by stocking in local brands.

When you shop local, with Skin Focus Spa for example, your dollars stay in the community and help local development. The impact is visible, If all consumers make a 1% shift it will create 3,100 jobs and sends $94M in wages to workers in B.C.

This multiplier effect could look like an affiliation with local partners, such as Mountain Skills Academy or coffee shops, like Garibaldi Caffe, stocking local eatery Cul De Saq Kitchen.

The chamber encourages business to business engagement; building symbiotic relationships that help the whole community prosper.
