The Town of Cochrane is encouraging residents to buy local and support local businesses.
A recent post on the Town’s Facebook page pointed the community to a new Shop Cochrane Facebook page where news about local retailers and service providers is being shared.
“No doubt these are uncertain times for all of us and that includes business” says Mayor Jeff Genung. “The Town of Cochrane is working to assist our local business community and we’re committed to doing our part through this challenging time.”
The new Facebook page dedicated to sharing what Cochrane businesses are doing in the community to continue supporting and serving residents was launched earlier this week.
Residents are being encouraged to show their support in variety of ways: visit the page for information or check favourite local shops’ websites to see what they are offering.
Business owners are invited to share information about adjustments to services; businesses can also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Cochrane Business Development is also connecting local businesses with provincial and federal resources on cochrane.ca/BusinessDev.
The Town is reminding everyone that we can get through this difficult time if we work together.
