It’s officially the end of summer with rainy days and chilly nights ushering in the fall. While this fall is certainly a little different than the past years, there’s plenty of ways to enjoy sweater weather while staying and supporting local.
Thriving local businesses are the backbone of life in any community. They provide character and individuality to a neighbourhood. Few things deepen that sense of being part of a neighbourhood than being greeted with a familiar smile at your favourite haunts. The charm and personalized service at local businesses really give you a sense of the community it serves.
With cooler and wetter weather making it harder for local businesses to provide outdoor dining and shopping, it’s more important than ever to eat and shop locally this fall and winter.
If you are in the New Westminster and Burnaby areas, you’re in luck. These neighbourhoods are packed with local businesses lending a unique charm to each community. Whether you’re local or just visiting, there’s plenty to explore. Both New Westminster and Burnaby are littered with restaurants for your inner foodie to discover. If you’re looking to do some shopping for this holiday season, there is no shortage of charming shops catering to your retail needs this holiday season. With local businesses providing healthcare services, farm-fresh and sustainable grocery options, there’s a local business for every need.
