Shop Safe, Shop Local!

Masks on. Two metres apart. Supporting Local. 

This is what we like to see on Stony Plain Road! As the holidays approach, we wanted to reach out and let you know how you can support local while being safe during COVID-19. The last 8 months has been tough for everyone. And with COVID numbers on the rise in Edmonton, it may be tempting to stay home and online shop on large retail sites. While we totally get wanting to stay home, but there are many ways to support your local businesses from the comfort of your own home or without leaving the car. 

After things shut down in March and April, many Stony Plain Road & Area businesses took the time to switch to e-commerce (online shopping), curbside pickup, over-the-phone orders, and deliveries. Businesses are here to help you and they are just a phone call away during this trying time. 

So, remember this holiday season, to order take-out from your favourite local restaurant, pick up a craft from your local independant art store, or visit your neighbourhood deli for your holiday meals! 

Here at the Stony Plain Road & Area Business Association, we are proud of our businesses who have adhered to the AHS (Alberta Health Services) guidelines to provide a safe and sanitary shopping experience for customers and community members. If shopping in person is more your style, you can shop our diverse collection of businesses in person knowing that they have taken the proper measures to keep you safe during this pandemic. 

The businesses you choose to support right now, define what businesses are part of your community! Encourage your friends and family to try out your favourite local spot and share on social media! Giving a business that exposure can help a lot under normal circumstances, and can help tremendously during COVID-19. Don’t forget to tag us when you share our businesses on social media so we can also share!
