Environmental Stewardship

Our platform helps connect consumers with local, independent businesses. Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation, and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.

About us

The Kelowna area is home to more than 7,500 businesses, most of which are locally owned and operated 'independent' businesses. These independent businesses are the backbone of our Kelowna Economy.
We built ShopKelowna.com to support and promote these local businesses with the principle of the 'local multiplier effect' in mind. The Local Multiplier Effect refers to the increased wealth creation that occurs when money is spent locally and re-circulates within the local economy.
The trend for many consumers has been to shop at big box stores or online at Amazon, but unfortunately, these shopping choices actually hurt Kelowna by taking money out our local economy.
To reverse this trend, and keep more money in Kelowna, we've developed a local online directory and marketplace featuring great local businesses and the products and services they offer.

What we believe in

We envision a thriving local community with a strong, prosperous economy where bustling local shops and a vibrant downtown are filled with proud local shoppers, happy to support their friends and neighbours as they shop locally first.
