This weekend will be full of Black Friday Promotions and Cyber Monday deals everywhere online and in stores, however, a less known shopping day that also occurs this weekend is Small Business Saturday. This weekend you have a choice to choose to shop from large corporations who often dominate the market, exploit workers, and damage the environment with no repercussions… OR you can choose to support your local economy and business owners with shopping local. In a time like this, it is more important than ever to be giving back to our community members and business owners who have been working so hard to stay open. This year, instead of jumping onto the best deals, take the time to consider what deals your local small businesses are offering! Who knows, you might even find some hidden treasures.
As a new small business ourselves, we wanted to take this opportunity to shoutout some other local small businesses here in Toronto, Canada!
Bare Market is a beautiful local shop here in Toronto that focuses on a sustainable way to purchase groceries and other goods package-free. Even during these tough lockdowns they have worked hard to stay open so give them a visit!
1480 Danforth Ave, Mon-Fri 10-7 Sat-Sun 10-6
Ecotique Toronto is a local shop that has unfortunately had to shut their physical store doors because of this years circumstances, however they are still offering curbside and shipping options! So make sure to check out what they have to offer and help support this local shop so they can open up again!
LOGAN & FINLEY
Logan & Finley is a small business here in Toronto that has just surpassed their 8 years of being open! They have high-quality beautiful clothing made to last, and other sustainable solution products!

This year, show some love to your local businesses. They are all working so hard to provide their products and services to the community, and would appreciate and need your support more than other large corporations.
