Become a shop local

Support local businesses and reap the rewards!

Here's the rundown

The Plan

Sweep Cornwall, Akwesasne, and the SDG Counties with Shop Local messaging using print mailers sent to every household, radio ads, social media, a fun video series—plus contests with up to $20,000 in prizing. All media will feature local vendors and encourage residents to find what they need for the holiday season and beyond, right here at home.
