I've said it before and I'll say it again - there is nothing like the service, thoughtfulness and product curation you'll find in a local boutique or shop.
Owners of local businesses choose their inventory for YOU, and it's based on spending time noticing what you buy, what you like, and what you ask for. They remember things about you that you didn't even realize they knew. They have staff that have been there for years, even decades, and know their stuff inside and out. They sponsor local teams and charity events, and give back to our communities in ways that chain stores never could.
Today is the day to show them some extra love by Shopping the Neighbourhood in downtown Burlington (or any downtown you happen to be living near - Oakville, Toronto, wherever!). They'll be offering special deals and discounts to make it even more worth your while than usual, and it's free parking in Downtown Btown all weekend and all of December too!
Great deals include 20% off store-wide off at Lingerie D'Amour and 20% off sweaters at The Oyster! Check out participating businesses and get all the details here. You can also find some more deets on twitter searching by the #shopthehoodburl - Hope to see you downtown later today!
