This month flew by so fast, I absolutely loved blogging my #DowntownWishList adventures again this year. I learned so much about Downtown Charlottetown and had the opportunity to meet so many talented, energetic and passionate individuals.
As Islanders, we are extremely lucky to have such a variety of local shops to choose from - there is something magical about visiting a shop and holding the items in your hand before buying them. When you buy local 67% of your dollars stay in Charlottetown, when you buy from a chain store 32% stay local and sadly when you buy online (as convenient as it is) 0% of your money stays in your community.
I am grateful for the outstanding work of Downtown Charlottetown Inc. a non-profit organization with the mandate to work with businesses to create and maintain a vibrant downtown through an established Business Improvement Area. Check out their website to learn about their other fantastic Downtown initiatives.
