WHY:
The WindsorEssex Small Business Centre (SBC) is proud to host our signature event, W.E. Shop Local Show, for the 5th consecutive year. This year’s presenting sponsor is the WFCU Credit Union. Other sponsors include: RBC, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, Windsor International Film Festival, Business Resource Centre of Essex, FedDev Ontario Small Business, Province of Ontario and YourTV.

October is Small Business Month in Canada, and W.E. Shop Local Show is an event dedicated to supporting and highlighting the contributions small businesses and entrepreneurs make to our local economy.

WHAT: 
The W.E. Shop Local Show is a free public event providing local small businesses exposure and an opportunity to sell their goods and services directly to the public. It connects Windsor-Essex residents with local and independent small businesses and responds to the public eagerly looking to purchase products and services from the Windsor-Essex region.

The W.E. Shop Local Show is a one-stop event to shop local, network and learn more about the services provided by SBC. This year’s event will feature 50 local small business vendors – from food and beverage to house wares, artisans, wellness, fashion and more! A list of vendors can be found on weshoplocalshow.com.

Last year’s event was an overwhelming success with over 1,200 people from across the region attending to shop local and support the region’s entrepreneurs.
