Local buying power in in your hands and makes the most sense given Alberta’s current economic state.
Local Calgary businesses have seen a steady increase in customers and of course this has been caused by the decline of the Canadian dollar. What was once a great deal online may not be so good once you factor in the American dollar.
More and more owners have tried to source Canadian companies, to not only keep the cost down, but also stimulate the Canadian economy by supporting local producers, and other businesses.
The logic is to keeping money local by supporting local entrepreneurs instead of supporting large (mostly American owned) corporations or shopping online.
