HAVE YOU WATCHED OUR
WHY LOCAL VIDEO YET?

 

 
Why Local? Why not?

The Parkland region is our home. We have amazing natural features, great people and such a depth of what it means to be a community. As individuals and as a collective, we need to choose local more than ever. Where we can, making the conscious effort to try a local merchant first as opposed to seeing our local dollars disappear to mega-corporate online stores. But it's not always about retail either. Try and source a service provider a little closer to home as well. The more we can support our local businesses the more they can support the community with jobs, taxes, influence, more businesses, donations and more. It's all about being Stronger Together and Supporting the Parkalnd.

Can you figure out all of the places and businesses featured in the video? 



 






More inspirational stories are pumping out! Grab an April 13th Dauphin Herald or April 16th Parkland Shopper for the next round of stories! We've launched a new campaign that will feature inspiring stories of some Chamber Members from across the region. These businesses took on the challenge of the pandemic and made a pivot in order to continue serving the community.


“So, I feel that whenever we can put businesses or organizations back into these small towns, it just brings local people back and possibly retains some of them, when we can have different jobs and services to offer.” Jarret - Rionet Wireless 


Watch for them each week in the Dauphin Herald and Parkland Shopper! Full stories will be shared on our website.
