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.

HOW TO SUPPORT

Be a Squamish champion and support our local businesses #supportsquamish
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

Super excited to see @wildandheart latest post about their re-opening next weekend! #roadtorecovery #supportsquamish #supportlocal #Repost ・・・ SHOP FEELS 💛✨ So happy to Re-open this past weekend and just wanted to update everyone as per our Covid19 safety measures and limited shop hours. We are continuing offering ONLINE shopping & FREE Delivery in Squamish as MOST recommended plus you can scoop styles first! But you can now visit us in-store and we have added plexiglass at check-out, and to practice social distancing we are limited to 3 customers Max at a time {thanks for your patience}, when shopping please limit your touching of product and if you plan to handle product you MUST use hand-sanitizer provided or your own, try-on’s only if your serious, and we are cleaning throughout the day, also facemasks are coming in later this week and are recommended as our space is smaller, and our front door is going to be open for added ventilation most days. Limited Store hours are now Wed-Sat 11-5pm, and Sunday 11-4pm, this will change again soon most likely as we all figure out this new normal, but would love your feedback? And any suggestions so you feel good and safe in our space? All in all being safe and sharing our beautiful space and goods is the BEST feeling, so grateful for so much support locally and many said it this weekend ... some beauty and supporting local is good for our mental health too! Hope to see you soon from the other side, of the plexiglass 🤍 #shopfeels #covidsafety #staysafe #supportlocal #shoponline #instoresafety #squamish #wildandheart
