To help remind our local small businesses that we love them, Grey County has launched Rediscover Grey. This summer campaign highlights each of Grey County’s nine municipalities. We encourage you to explore and rediscover local businesses, restaurants and outdoor spaces, safely. Rediscover Grey by recommending a local favourite to family or friends, choosing to check local options first for your regular shopping, and sharing the Support Local Grey County social media challenge to win some great local prizes.
