Northern Development is helping small town businesses better compete in a very competitive market.
The Small Town Love program helps independent businesses in small towns market themselves and establish a web presence.
Renata King is the Director of Business Development with Northern Development.
She says for every dollar spent at an independent business in a small town, about 70 cents stays locally, while it’s 30 cents for franchises.
But she emphasizes it’s not a “us” against “them” mentality though.
Terrace’s workshop is tonight at Denny’s 6:30pm until 8pm.
