We Understand the Importance of Supporting Local Because We’re Local Too

As an entrepreneur in Southeast Alberta, you know that local businesses are the heart of our community. From economic vitality to employment and supporting community causes, our region could not thrive without local business. As a customer, shopping local means supporting neighbours, and getting personalized service that just isn’t available from big box stores or businesses outside our community.
