Mayor Angelo Tsirekas is calling on the community to shop local during small business month this October.

“Local business is the beating heart of our economy and this year they’re doing it tough,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

“Now more than ever it is critical we support our local economy and shop local.”

“Our area is home to an array of unique spots for shopping and I encourage you to choose to love local this October and support small business. You can check out our Love Local business map online to find retailers or service providers of your choice.”

The City of Canada Bay has also already provided over two million dollars of financial support during the pandemic, and has established a business taskforce to tackle the COVID–19 response and recovery effort.

“To continue our support for small business, this month we are hosting a business mentoring program, a training session for small business on social media marketing, and a business breakfast on vision and innovation for the newly formed Drummoyne Chamber of Commerce,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

“I encourage businesses across our City to get involved in the programs on offer and I hope community members and visitors enjoy getting out and about throughout our area this spring to support our local economy.”
