Support Local During Independent Retailer Month

Saturday July 4th, 2020, 11:00am


July marks Independent Retailer Month and how lucky are we to have so many indie retailers, artisans and unique shopping areas across Windsor Essex? Independent Retailers are our neighbours and fellow community members who may be running the local market where we can buy fresh grown produce or handcrafting furniture and housewares to adorn our homes.

By shopping locally and supporting those in our community, we can work together to create sustainability and strengthen our local economy.  Though we encourage shopping independent and small retailers year-round, this month is a great reminder to celebrate those who help sustain our cites, towns and communities.

W.E. Made It

W.E. Made It is your exploration guide to the hundreds of creatives that design, stitch, build and brew amazing products here in Windsor Essex. Shop local and support the businesses that embody our region’s true creative spirit.  Discover locally made products like gourmet dishes, crafted jewellery, home goods, apparel, art, furniture as well as local coffee, teas, wine, beer and whisky.
