Mayor's Message: Shop Local!
Aina DeViet Headshot
Hello everyone,

One of the groups in our community that has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic is our small business sector. While some local businesses were able to ‘pivot’ by developing different ways of safely providing their goods and services, for others there were no alternate ways of conducting business and they had to wait until Stage 3 to finally reopen.

Small businesses normally operate with tight margins but during the lockdown many incurred ongoing expenses while at the same time losing significant revenue. We need to help our local business people stay in business and get back on track!

Our local businesses are important to the vitality and sustainability our communities. They provide local jobs. Their unique products attract visitors to Middlesex Centre, which in turn provide other opportunities for our residents. Diversification of the tax base strengthens our municipal financial position, and services closer to home provide convenience and peace of mind for residents.

I’m encouraging all of you to continue to “shop local!” Actively seek out opportunities to expand your network of local shopping connections and recommend our vendors, shop keepers and service providers to people you know. You really can get almost everything you need right here in Middlesex Centre!

Stay well,
Aina
