Municipality of North Grenville launches Online Campaign to Support Local Businesses
NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – The Municipality of North Grenville has launched a Shop Local Support Local online campaign to encourage residents to shop local and support the local economy.
“While we are still required to stay home as much as possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19, when you do go out for household items, please stay local and shop local,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.
“We have an incredible variety of local businesses that serve North Grenville, and we encourage you to shop local as much as you can,” added Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman.
The region transitioned into GREEN-Prevent Zone on February 16 and the campaign is meant to encourage residents to shop local as much as possible.
“Shopping local keeps our community safe. Avoiding travel to other regions with higher COVID-19 transition rates (including the City of Ottawa) protects North Grenville’s most vulnerable residents and gives you the chance to support our local economy,” emphasized Mayor Peckford.
The online campaign has identified five “days of the week” themes whereby residents can support different local businesses including:
- Takeout Tuesday
- Wear It Wednesday
- Fitness Friday
- Selfcare Saturday
- Do-it-Yourself Sunday
Residents are encouraged to share a selfie and help promote the local business they support. Businesses are also encouraged to share the graphics to help showcase the diversity of local businesses.
Since the Spring of 2020, the Municipality has led a robust COVID adaptation strategy for local businesses, in addition to launching a sustained shop local campaign, #LoveNG.
