Shopping close to home helps local economy

Dear editor,

During the Christmas season, I am reminded of its tradition of giving to others through goodwill towards family and friends.

Dear editor,

During the Christmas season, I am reminded of its tradition of giving to others through goodwill towards family and friends.

I also have taken note that the Comox Valley is a very generous community in times of need when disaster and crisis occurs, locally, nationally and internationally.

It is a characteristic that we can all be proud of. With this community spirit in mind, I encourage locals to consider supporting local small businesses at this time.

Your support will help financially support local jobs, keep the money in the Valley which eventually comes back to residents in local services in the economic cycle. And, it fosters sustainability amongst our local entrepreneurs.

Christmas is a time for family, friends and community. Consider helping our local economy when shopping at this wonderful time of year.

Hugh MacKinnon,

Comox
