A local company has teamed up with the Leduc Regional Chamber of Commerce to link consumers with local businesses.
Buy Local campaigns are becoming more prevalent due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Chamber of Commerce has stepped up to make things easier for consumers.
It has teamed up with a local company that owns the local rights to an app called Get In The Loop. "We have a food and drink loop, a salon and spa, things to do, shopping and, just launched on Monday is our holiday loop," said owner Lindsey Vanlaar about the Jolly Holiday Countdown campaign.
The app is free for consumers to download, and it's even free for businesses to have themselves listed. "We just ask that each business donates a minimum $25 gift card to the campaign," said Vanlaar. "These gift cards are going to be distributed throughout the app as giveaways starting December 1st.
Some 60 businesses have already signed on to the app, but there is room for more. "We're making it easier for the consumer to get their holiday shopping done while supporting local," added Vanlaar.
