Local campaign offers free exposure for Mississauga businesses

Published December 4, 2021 at 10:20 am

For Mississauga businesses and shoppers making an effort to support local, Shop Local Mississauga is here to make your life easier.

Shop Local Mississauga is a handy resource that shows all the best places in the city to shop, dine, and enjoy local. It features a directory of businesses that can be freely contributed to.

Business owners are invited to get their business’ name out there and attract more customers by adding it to the directory. It’s free and easy — just add your business’ name and location/contact information to let residents know how to reach you. You can also add a description, photos and video!

Not only does your business get listed in the directory, Shop Local Mississauga will promote businesses across their social media pages as well as offer video interviews/business spotlights.

Residents and businesses can get promoted on social media by following Shop Local Mississauga on Instagram and Twitter and posting with the hashtags #ShopLocalMississauga or #BeLocal.

Shop Local Mississauga is already shining a spotlight on businesses and restaurants such as Little Rose Cookie Co. in Streetsville and Alioli Ristorante in the City Centre — and your business could be next to get featured.

The program also highlights great places to hang out and enjoy the city, including the Riverwood Conservancy’s natural beauty, Streetsville with its old-school charm, and Port Credit with its lakeside view and iconic lighthouse.

Shop Local Mississauga was born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought forth a very pressing need to support our local businesses as much as possible.

“Local businesses have struggled to stay open. The same is true for restaurants and entertainment hot spots,” says the Mississauga Board of Trade.

“This fall, Mississauga is coming together to show our love for our city and our neighbours.

It’s time to get out (safely) and Shop, Dine and Enjoy Mississauga.”

If your business could benefit from the exposure, be sure to add it to the directory.

Shop Local Mississauga is run by the Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT). For more information, visit shoplocalmississauga.ca and follow their Instagram and Twitter, or shoot an email to [email protected].

Love local, support local, be local!
