In a year unlike any other, many shoppers have been looking to branch out from their usual roster of retailers in order to shop small. Whether you’re looking to support Black-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, or just small businesses in general, there’s never been a better time to put your money where your mouth is.
While shopping local has always been an important way to support Canadian entrepreneurs, this year it’s even more important to help show our support. Online directories like Not Amazon, or The Product Boss’ Small Business Directory are an easy way to expand your horizons and find new ways to shop.
