Whether your business is locally owned or not, it has an impact on the economy of the community, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, the region and beyond. Join us to learn what impact your business has, and how to market your local attributes to consumers who love local.
LOCO, the Downtown Maple Ridge BIA, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce and the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News are planning a consumer education campaign to promote buy local stories of area businesses to consumers.
The workshop will include:
