Shop Local Initiative


DECEMBER 2019 - LOCAL BUSINESS MONTH!
 
The Town of Langenburg announces December as "Local Business Month", to encourage everyone to Shop Local during the Holiday season!

For the month of December, 2019 we inspire YOU to support local businesses with the release of a BUSINESS ADVENT CALENDAR!

How it will work:
Starting December 1st until the 24th, every local participating business will have their "Business Advent Calendar" number on their storefront window. That means that this DAY is dedicated to that particular business, and we, Langenburg people, should take the time to visit that local business on its DAY (look at the calendar) and:
- show our gratitude and support;
- help boost sales by buying something;
- find out more about their services and what they offer. 

That's not all, each business has prepared something special for YOU - gifts, surprises, discounts or treats on their DAY! 

Dear Langenburger's, let's support our businesses and show them that we are grateful as they are supporting us and our community projects all year round!

Shop Local month reminds us that choosing to support local can make a huge difference to our local economy and keep stores and services open!
 
 
 

 

The Langenburg Community Development Board's "Shop Local” social media campaign all year round

This campaign was designed to encourage people to vary their shopping behaviours by buying goods and services at local businesses, ultimately keeping their dollars within Langenburg and neighbourhood.

The campaign goal is to visit all local businesses and showcase their services, employees and contributions they have made within the community, through our Town of Langenburg Facebook and Instagram. 

Why eat, shop and hire locally?

  • Saves you time and money on trips. Instead of driving to the city you have more time to spend with your loved ones.
  • Your local shops and services can offer choices and options you just can’t get anywhere else.
  • Unique hand crafted items and fresher food are among the advantages.
  • Being a "local” at a nearby shop or restaurant can be a great feeling. Having a shop or service owner who knows what you want, and is willing to order the things they don’t have just for you, is a whole new level of convenience. Also, you’re getting to know neighbours, newcomers and helping to build community spirit.
  • Beyond feel-good community building, shopping locally has definite economic benefits. Studies suggest that each $100 spent at local independent stores in turn generates $45 of secondary local spending.
  • Strong local shopping areas have a positive impact on local property values.
  • Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and can provide better wages.
  • Community based stores help to sustain a vibrant and charming town center which will attract tourists and other visitors.
  • Local businesses generously contributing to local causes: sports, events, projects and charities  (250% more than big corporations!).
  • A brisk walk through your neighbourhood makes a nice dent in Health Canada’s recommended 150 minutes of exercise per week!
The Town of Langenburg's Community Development Board promotes the belief that by supporting and promoting small business, we can make a huge change toward a stronger community and economy.
