Shopping locally, supporting small businesses ‘more important now than ever’

Businesses and organizations across north Simcoe are urging residents to invest in their communities to help the local economy rebound from the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is always important that people shop locally, but it is crucial right now,” said Debbie Levy, a Penetanguishene councillor and owner of The Reading Room bookstore.

“For those of us small businesses who have made it through what I hope is the worst of the shutdown, it is important the community supports us.” []
