Let's kick off the Holiday Season by supporting our local Fernie businesses!
Why is this important? Non-profit LOCO BC commissioned U.S. research firm Civic Economics to complete a study last year into the impact of consumer spending at locally owned businesses. The study found that for every $100 spent with a BC local business, $63 is re-circulated back into the local BC economy – compared to $14 for multinational companies. This means that local businesses re-circulate 4.6 times more revenue in the local economy.
