Supporting local Businesses builds the local economy, the local community, and a lot of character.
Dauphin's Economic development Manger Martijn Van Luijn gives us some insight on how Putting your money where your house is does exactly that.
"We all know that shopping local is good because it creates job and its good for teh economy, but it's also creates character. you support our culture and who we are as people. Dauphin has a lot of unique stores that people go to. whether its for makers, or people that have had a mom and pop shop for a very very long time. its the make up of our community, it makes us who we are."
Supporting these unique local businesses allows them to continue provide the goods and services you could only find here in the city of Dauphin.
