small biz

Today (October 25) is Shop Small Biz Day in Canada!  That means it’s the perfect time for you to stop in at those local shops and make a purchase to show you care!

Here’s some more info:

Shop Small Biz, now in its second year, is an initiative to empower small business owners and to educate consumers about the important role that small Canadian businesses play in our lives.

This October 25th, in addition to the extensive media coverage and shop local promotions we have planned, we are also launching a permanent online directory, free and exclusive to Canadian independent businesses. One of the many features of this directory is an opportunity for businesses owners to post and share their Small Business Day deals and other promotions. Canadians who wish to shop frugal while supporting Canadian business now have a single place to go online for information and deals!

Last year, thousands of businesses celebrated the day with special promotions and sales. The public showed their support by making a point to shop local.

Here are some Shop Small Biz links that you may enjoy checking out:
