Unifying a Strong Community

Shopping local opens opportunities for a strong, thriving community. Shopping local creates better roads, great parks and recreational centres.

Shopping local means a stronger economy for a more vibrant community. 

Shop Thorold shows the direct results of acting locally. 

Shop Thorold gives power to our residents to keep our community prosperous.

Did you know for every $100 spent at a national chain, only $43 stays local?

When a customer spends $100 at a local business like Henderson’s Pharmacy as much as $68 stays in our community. 

That’s a lot of money that stays in town.  That money turns over 5 to 7 times in our local economy.  The local spin-offs recirculate dollars to credit unions, home improvement contractors, retailers, restaurants, and much more for the local benefit.

Dollars invested locally earn a higher rate of community return. It’s almost 60 percent higher. This adds up to more businesses paying property taxes. This means more dollars available for municipal improvements, and our quality of life in Thorold.
