Welcome to our community platform where small businesses can come together to find customers and grow their business.
While most of you may already be familiar with our GreenPort Store, our community platform is a brainchild concept by the CEO of GreenPort Cannabis, Vivianne Wilson, who is keenly interested in collaborating alongside small business owners from various neighbourhoods within the GTA region.
Our community platform will be a place where businesses can highlight and share their local listings, products, services, and events to make it easier for their customers to find what they need. Small, independent businesses have always been more devoted to their local communities. It is how they are established, how they create a sense of place for their customers, and the products they sell.
Local businesses are owned mainly by persons living in the same neighbourhood. They are invested in the well-being of the Community. Local business owners consistently make an effort to get to know their customers and traditionally also give back more to their neighbourhood
Buying local helps created jobs and motivates local producers to be more economically viable against larger businesses. With customers purchasing locally made available products, they help by improving the quality of life within their community, which results in economic and social benefits.
There are many ways you can support your Community, whether it be by:
-Patronizing a local restaurant in your neighbourhood
-Purchasing artisan-made products
-Visiting your local doctor/dental office/pharmacy for your check-ups and medications
-Seeking out your favourite pastries from your local bakery
-Getting your car serviced by your local mechanic
So the next time you’re feeling hungry, looking for presents for your family gatherings, or need to go to the doctor, be sure to check out your own neighbourhood and see what there is to offer.
