Shop Local with Guelph Shops

Nov 26, 2021

This holiday season, we're encouraging residents to shop & support local businesses whenever you can. Specifically, we're challenging you to shop 3 to 5 items (or more!) locally this holiday season. Spending money with local businesses invests right back into our own community making Guelph a better place to work, live, and play.

We've teamed up with the Economic Development & Tourism department at the City of Guelph to provide you with resources to help spread the "shop local" holiday cheer!
