Advance Electronics is partnering with the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, Assiniboine Credit Union, and a proud group of local businesses to encourage Winnipeg to seek out a locally owned shop or boutique when looking for that perfect gift this holiday season.
The campaign is about getting to know the unique stories of neighbourhood stores, shops and boutiques to showcase local businesses. We encourage you to join the conversation by using the hashtag #UnwrapWPG on social media when you buy a gift from a local business and support our community. Every time you do, your name will be entered into a contest to win a local shopping spree.
Finally… spread the word! As a valued customer, we don’t have to remind you of the value of shopping local:
Helps shape our city – The character of our city’s neighbourhoods is shaped by the people living there and the shops and restaurants that serve them. Spending money at these local businesses helps them to thrive, supports the families that own them, and builds the personality of our neighbourhoods.
Supports our economy – Money spent at a local business is reinvested and remains in our community. Shopping local strengthens the economy.
Great quality with better customer service – A local business will always provide better service and offer a personal connection to the products purchased there. You will never be left in the dark after buying a gift from a local shop.
For more information on this shop local initiative, visit the Winnipeg Chamber’s website and find out how we can #UnwrapWPG this holiday season.
