Our Shop Local Brantford-Brant program has officially launched!
Please look to engage however suits your business and personal interests! From learning about our great locally owned and operated businesses to allocating a portion of your holiday spending dollars specifically to our retail and restaurant businesses in Brantford, Brant, and Six Nations. You may also want to think about diving into advertising, video, social media, or MyBrantford feature within our campaign! Contact Olivia at olivia@brcc.ca for more information.
Our Rapid Screening program continues to draw renewals and new businesses, while our Wine, Women, and Shopping Event gears up for its 15th Anniversary on November 24th, and our Annual Holiday Open House plans are developing to be a great event at the Rope Factory Event Hall on December 7th.
