Celebrating Small Business Week
Small businesses are the heartbeat of the Canadian economy, driving innovation, creating jobs, and building vibrant communities. At Gift Better Co., we understand the importance of supporting local businesses, especially during Small Business Week.
To celebrate Small Business Week, we gave each of our team members a budget to spend on any small business they choose. By supporting local businesses, we not only help to keep dollars circulating in our community, but we also show our appreciation for the people who make our neighborhoods unique and special.
Small businesses have been hit particularly hard during the pandemic, and that's why initiatives like ours are so important. By shopping locally, we can help to create a multiplier effect that stimulates economic growth and keeps our communities thriving.
We’re shining a spotlight on each of the businesses that our team members chose to support below. Be sure to check them out, share their content, and make a purchase!

More Ways to Support Small Businesses
Supporting small businesses is about more than just shopping local. There are plenty of other ways to show your support:
Attend local events
Many small businesses host events like art shows, concerts, and food festivals. By attending these events, you not only have a great time, but you also show your support for the local community.
Leave positive reviews
Reviews are essential for small businesses to attract new customers. Take a few minutes to leave a glowing review on platforms like Google or Facebook.
Volunteer your time
If you have a skillset that could benefit a small business, consider volunteering your time.
