It’s time to celebrate what makes this territory so great — our community!
Yukoner Appreciation Week is back Nov. 2 to 5, your chance to step out into your community, support local businesses and maybe win some fantastic prizes.
“As local businesses, we appreciate the support you’ve shown through a difficult few years. But as fellow Yukoners, we appreciate living in a place with so many amazing local businesses contributing to our community. In a way, Yukoner Appreciation Week is for all of us!” says Andrei Samson, Executive Director of the Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce.
What’s better than going out and supporting local businesses? Doing it with friends and family! Take in local shops, eat at local restaurants, and make a day of supporting your local community with people you love. When you shop local, you’re not just helping one business. Your support enables local businesses to turn around and help sponsor and support community events, sports teams, and worthy causes that make Whitehorse special.
It’s more than shopping local — it’s supporting your local community!
