Buy gift cards or treats and help your nearby small businesses and their employees survive the COVID-19 closures.


We are a small collective of local business owners pooling our tech resources and helping each other find support online in this time of need.

Over 25% of small businesses are not expected to survive this healthcare and economic crisis and will be forced to close permanently. Our small businesses are an important part of our local culture, and it’s in our power to save them.

Help support your local community by buying gift cards, shopping online, and spreading the word so that your favourite shops will be around for years to come.
