Rediscover local businesses and Shop In Durham this holiday season
DURHAM: This holiday season and beyond, Durham Tourism, along with the Durham Region Joint Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade, have a special request for residents: Shop where you live, shop in Durham.
“When you shop where you live, you’re supporting your neighbours, local entrepreneurs and employees making a positive impact on your community, all the while discovering special gifts to share with your loved ones this holiday season,” explained Simon Gill, Director of Economic Development and Tourism, Region of Durham.
The Shop Where You Live campaign aims to raise awareness that buying locally will have a big impact on Durham’s economy. The campaign encourages residents to shop locally across Durham’s eight area municipalities for their holiday gift-giving.
“We encourage residents to shop where they live and show their support for their neighbours. Uxbridge’s entrepreneurs are an important part of our community. Let’s celebrate together!” added Angela Horne, President, Uxbridge Chamber of Commerce.
Shoppers can help support the campaign by using the hashtag #ShopInDurham when sharing their local holiday finds on social media. “Brock Township thrives on our local businesses. You can shop where you live for a variety of gift-giving options. This holiday season choose local!” saidElizabeth Burley, President, Brock Board of Trade.
The Region of Durham is proclaiming November 28th to December 4th as “Shop in Durham Week” to celebrate Durham’s incredible and diverse business community. The week will kick off with a flag-raising ceremony on November 29th.
“This holiday season, show your hometown pride by shopping where you live. Scugog’s businesses have great things in store for you!” statedKarey Anne Large, Executive Director, Scugog Chamber of Commerce.
