We are a group of independent Montreal businesses and we want to fight this recession. Shoppers are nervous and we are feeling the pinch. They are spending less in small independent neighbourhood businesses and seriously jeopardizing our survival, with some who have already closed shop.

Buy Local Day will be held Saturday April 25th in effort to make consumers aware of their power to sustain their beloved neighbourhood businesses that make up not only the backbone of the Canadian economy, but supply the charm and warmth of a community.

We, small independent stores, are also creating jobs and helping the economy roll. If we go under, the economy does too.

Please see attach our Press Release ready for immediate release.

Together, we know we can thrive and make the economy healthier and more stable.

Thank you for your support and pass the word.

Kindest regards,

The co-creators of Buy Something Day:

Suzanne Dyson
Owner and soul of Ko Clothes

Sabrina Maisonneuve
Store manager at Le Marché Mtl
