Shop Quinte West
Shop Quinte West supports and promotes local businesses of all sizes to our local residents and advocates the benefits of shopping locally, highlighting any promotions, campaigns and giveaways happening within our business community.
The Quinte West Chamber is pleased to work with the City of Quinte West and the Downtown Trenton Business Improvement Association (DBIA) on the Shop Local campaign.
The Shop Local, Shop Quinte West program first began in 2008, and thanks to the ongoing partnership with the City of Quinte West and DBIA, has grown significantly over the years. The program has included multiple events, newspaper inserts, and radio advertising to encourage our community to shop smart, shop local, Shop Quinte West. The program helps to promote the benefit for shopping locally, including strengthening our job market and overall economic growth.
