Love Local Campaign

Posted on : Monday, February 01, 2021


We are celebrating the month of love by declaring our love for local all month long!


We asked local business owners and downtown champions why they love to be downtown and why they love supporting local. We will be sharing the answers on our social media throughout the month of February.


Our first feature is Justin from O2 Training Centre. Justin is a board member on our Board of Directors and a champion of supporting local. Here is what he had to say.


“Supporting and shopping locally means you are supporting local family and friends. I have been a part of the downtown core for almost 10 years, in that time I have made many friends, who are also business owners. The downtown business community is like a big family. We get the privilege of getting to know one another on a personal level while experiencing the highs and lows of owning and operating small business together. Being in such a tight nit downtown core means most days you run into friends on the street, which usually leads into great conversation. Supporting local isn't just about success, it's about the friendships and memories made along the way.”


We would love for you to share with us why you love local too! Send us a message on social media or email us at if you want to share your local love story with us – you might just see it on our social accounts.


Stay tuned to read more great reasons and stories on why our community loves local every day of February!
