*Please note the Rediscover Grey Contest has wrapped up.*  You can still Rediscover Grey by supporting local businesses and re-discovering your own backyard.

Now more than ever, it’s so important to support each other. One of the best ways to support our neighbours and our communities is to support locally owned businesses 

When you buy local, your money stays in our communities and helps to build a stronger local economy. Shopping local creates meaningful employment opportunities here at home and creates tax revenue to fund healthcare and education - not to mention providing the satisfaction of knowing exactly where your food came from! 

We know with the COVID-19 pandemic small businesses are suffering, so let’s show them how we love them. Recommend a local favourite to family or friends. Choose to check local options first for your regular shopping. Check out the list below for some fun challenges to support your local adventures, and share the Support Local Grey County social media challenge to win some great local prizes!  

  • Post a photo of your locally purchased items (and tag the shop!) with the hashtag #RediscoverGrey

  • Share a snapshot of your favourite recently reopened local business, or buy online from a small business that’s not yet reopened  

  • Write an online review for a local business and share a photo from your visit

  • Visit an outdoor space you’ve never visited before and look for a new local business nearby  

  • Try a new restaurant in your community this summer. Enjoy the fresh air on a patio or just order takeout  

  • Go for a physically distanced walk with a friend and stop for a treat at a local café
