Grow your business
Today’s consumers have more options than ever when it comes to shopping. From the mall to big box retail to online, selection and price are big drivers of shoppers’ behaviour. But the convenience and personal touch of a local small business can’t be beat.
Yellow Pages introduced Shop The Neighbourhood in 2013 to promote the importance of local shopping. Now in its fourth year, Shop The Neighbourhood helps build stronger communities by bringing Canadian shoppers and local businesses together year-round to celebrate the importance of local commerce and its positive impact on neighbourhood vitality and economy.
