With just a few days left to shop for Christmas, you could save time by shopping right here in the Fort.
Fort Saskatchewan's Chamber of Commerce would like to see residents shop local not only during the holidays but year round.
“That’s what drives our economy and attracts new business as well,” said Rene Holinski, Chamber of Commerce event coordinator.
The Chamber encourages people to familiarize themselves with their community. Whether that means grabbing a coffee and taking a little drive to see what stores are in the Fort, or by asking questions to family and friends on where they shop.
“If you put your head down and you drive to Sherwood Park, you’re going to be missing out on all the unique opportunities we have right here in Fort Saskatchewan,” said Holinski.
A lot of businesses also thrive on referrals, she noted.
Holinski continues to shop locally and she personally likes the service and goods provided at Roland's Jewelry.
