Town of Gananoque, Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands and 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce prepare to launch Be Kind, Shop Local Satudays

Town News

Every Saturday, starting on November 21st throughout the holidays we will be hosting Be Kind, Shop Local Saturdays. During this time, the Town of Gananoque, Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands, and 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce will be asking customers to track local spending online to reach our community goal of inserting $15,000 back into our local economies. We will also be asking customers to share 500 stories online of when they showed kindness or community spirit.

When the customer enters their local purchase/story online, they will be entered into three different prize draws. We will be asking interested businesses to handout postcards to customers with information on how to share their purchase/story. On our website, you will be able to follow along through the holiday season of how many local purchases are being made and how close we are to our goal. We will regularly be sharing updates of our progress.

If your business is interested in participating in Be Kind, Shop Local Saturdays please reach out to redprojectcoordinator@gananoque.ca.
