Ware On C Puts A Spotlight On Shopping Small
Although the last Ware On C for 2018 took place on December 6th, the impact of the monthly community block party remains, as many residents are encouraged to shop small businesses. Amongst the activities provided, guests were supplied with an event passport, which required each participant to visit the vendor booths offered, but also to visit the brick and mortar retail stores located on C Avenue.
Eddie Hamra, owner of Edward’s Menswear, stated, “Even though the weather was relatively cold, I felt like we had people show up with the passports that were new to our store. All in all, I feel that the passport promotion is a great way for people to see who we are and what we are about".
As planning will commence for Ware On C next year, local residents are encouraged to continue shopping local small business and supporting our Chamber members.
