A new year brings a clean slate. For us travel lovers, it means an opportunity to plan our next location. While traveling outside of The Maritimes isn’t likely an option, there are some fantastic things to see and do all throughout our region, and some fantastic businesses to support to help the local economy! If you’ve been fortunate enough to be the recipient of some gift cards or money over the holidays, there are many ways you can keep it local! Not only does spending money locally keep your money within the community, but the network of local businesses, service providers, and suppliers benefit from every opportunity you take to spend support just 1 business in a local community.
In New Brunswick, https://loveforlocal.ca/ has an amazing list of local businesses, how to contact them, and how to safely buy from them, whether it’s delivery or curbside pickup.
In Nova Scotia https://nslocal.ca/ has a similar list with local businesses from the South Shore to Sydney and everywhere in between!
Our love of local businesses is no surprise. All Coastal Inns locations are locally owned and employ members of their respective communities. We are closely connected to other local businesses in each location and are always encouraged when we see our community come together to support them!
