Loving Local is about appreciating all that our community has to offer, including supporting our local businesses.
Why Shop Local? When you purchase at a locally owned business more money is kept in the community. Locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses, service providers and farms, so purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base. And, you can feel great about helping your neighbour, or, local business owner support their family. There are so many reasons why shopping local makes a difference!
I Love Thorndale makes loving local easy and exciting. You can find most of the local businesses in Thorndale and the surrounding areas listed on our business directory, so finding a business that meets your needs is as easy as finding the category and connecting with that business. AND, we encourage residents to pick up a Love Local card and get it stamped by the local businesses you frequent, then put your filled card in a draw box located at the Library, BMO Bank, The Market on King, Thorndale Farm Supplies, & ACE Hardware for a chance to win some great local prizes! Winners are announced through social media, and posted here.
