Ganges Village “Shop Local Social” on December 14th

Ganges “Shop Local Social” is set for the evening of Thursday, December 14th from 4 to 8 pm.

Join the merchants of Ganges for an evening of late shopping, special incentives, holiday cheer … and most importantly fun! It really is possible to shop for your whole holiday list on island!

Have you noticed great new businesses & boutiques have popped up on our Island? Have you visited one of Salt Spring’s landmark businesses lately?  There is some really unique, boutique and exemplary customer service being offered right here “on the rock”!

Shopping local is not only fun, but it makes good sense.  Shopping for Christmas from locally owned businesses keeps dollars cycling in our community and helps ensure Salt Spring Island retains its distinctive character & charm.

Shop Local Social is your retail guide to all that our island has to offer – and stop for a re-fuel and a drink at one of our sweet eateries along the way!

And don’t forget that Glowtini is at Meaden Hall afterwards (go on you earned it!)
