Buy Local - #shopsquamish

When you choose to buy from a local business you are helping to support our community, create jobs and enhance prosperity by circulating dollars between businesses and residents. 

In these challenging times we must follow government directives to ensure the safety of our community.

There are still many ways to support local businesses, while observing the need for social distancing. Right now, our businesses need a champion.

Tips

WHY LOCAL?

Research shows that for every $100 spent with a BC local business, $63 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $14 for multi nations).

Local businesses:

    • circulate money back into our community
    • have owners who live and provide jobs in your community
    • provide more support for local events, sports teams and charities
    • are more likely to buy local services and stock
