Enriching Local Businesses in Bloor West Village With A New Web Platform
The Bloor West Village BIA’s campaign to maintain a strong business environment in the community and to encourage residents to shop local is in full swing. Under attack from big box retail and online shopping giants like Amazon, the neighbourhood is strengthening it’s online presence at www.ShopBloorWest.com which will make it easier for area residents to find what they want when they want it simply by visiting the website. A strong retail landscape and business community is what makes neighbourhoods great and this is certainly a step in the right direction in preserving the Bloor West Village neighbourhood businesses. Shopping locally is always a good idea and more often than not the level or knowledge and service local retailers provide makes for a great shopping experience. There is not doubt that Amazon and Big Box stores will continue to play a role in all of our lives but local BIA’s making it easier to shop local is a great way to keep “Local Business top of mind."
