About This Project

During the holiday shopping season we encourage our readership to go on thecoast.ca and pledge to spend $100 of their holiday shopping budget at a local business. Local retailers have supported us throughout the years – and we want our readers to do the same with these local businesses.

Why shop local:
-shopping local provides jobs
-creates more opportunities for Halifax
-keeps local dollars in Halifax
-1,300 Haligonians took the Buy Local Pledge, December 2014
