Shop Local Program 2016-12-06T15:13:04+00:00

Shop Local Program presented by Members of the Salt Spring Chamber!

The Salt Spring Chamber of Commerce is proud to present our new Shop Local program! All of our members participate in this great initiative that will support their businesses and create positive community spirit!

Locally-owned businesses return about 80% of each dollar to their community. And each dollar spent at a local business will return up to five times that amount within our community through taxes, employees’ wages, and purchases of materials, supplies and services at other independent businesses.

By staying on-island and purchasing groceries, clothing, services, building supplies and professional services you are supporting your neighbours, friends and their families and creating a sustainable Salt Spring Island.

This initiative is brought to you by the 300+ members of the Salt Spring Island Chamber of Commerce, serving the community since 1948. A list of participating businesses is featured on the Shop Local Directory here: Shop Local Directory

Thank you for Shopping Local, Salt Spring Island. Community, Jobs, Environment!
