Small Shop Fall comes to Downtown Kelowna

This Saturday, Oct. 22, park for free along downtown streets, city-owned street level lots and parkades.

Small Shop Fall

The Downtown Kelowna Association presents Small Shop Fall Saturday, Oct. 22, during Small Business Month.

On Saturday, 107 Downtown Kelowna businesses will be offering a special sale, demonstration or discount. Small Shop Fall helps local businesses promote themselves and encourages customers to shop locally. Plus, with every purchase there is a chance to win $250 to spend at Downtown Kelowna shops.

Did you know small and medium-sized make up 99.9 per cent of all Canadian companies and employ more than 60 per cent of private sector workers? Did you know 98.2 per cent of businesses in Canada have fewer than 100 employees? [BDC]

Downtown Kelowna recognizes that small businesses play a vital role in Kelowna’s local economy, not to mention provide jobs and preserve the downtown neighbourhood.

“Local businesses are owned by people in our community,” says Peggy Athans, executive director of the Downtown Kelowna Association. “So, Kelowna residents, show your support to local businesses by coming downtown to meet the store owners, do some shopping, grab a bite to eat. Check out all the different activities the businesses are doing to celebrate Small Business Month.”
