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. Finding a business that meets your needs is as easy as finding the category and connecting with that business.

20 Days of Holiday Giveaways

Back for its second year, I Love Thorndale is investing back into those businesses that have supported our work at a premium level this past year. Together we are able to offer some exciting local products or services as part of this second annual holiday giveaway campaign. These premium sponsors have significantly invested in the work of I Love Thorndale over the past year (and beyond), and so, we are excited to highlight their business while encouraging people to shop local during this holiday season.

We will draw for 20 LOCAL prizes daily starting on Friday, December 4th!
