Making a Difference: Shop Local, Buy Local

IT is Local Newspaper Week (May 12 to May 18) and the Observer series is highlighting our great local businesses.

As part of our Shop Local, Buy Local campaign, business editor Bex Bastable has been running profiles on a host of local entrepreneurs, from hair salons, to fashion boutiques with a host of other profiles lined up in the weeks to come.

At the Observer, we know how important it is to work with local businesses so we spoke to some of our local retailers and restaurant owners about what the paper means to them and the role it plays in the community.
