October is Small Business Month in Canada, a time to recognize and celebrate the exceptional contributions that local businesses make in our community.  Small businesses are the backbone of the Port Credit community.  Show your support for independent retailers by shopping local and encouraging others to do so.  Stop in at the restaurants and boutiques in your neighbourhood and take advantage of what these unique businesses have to offer.

There are numerous advantages to shopping at your local independent retailers.  The business owners in Port Credit are very passionate about what they do and are deeply committed to the success of their business.  The customer care you will experience is unmatched anywhere else, not to mention the management team and staff are experts in their field.  Small businesses offer product diversity and the merchandise is often one-of-a-kind.  Lastly, local business owners love giving back to the community, whether it is contributing to local events, or supporting local causes
