Day 22 - Downtown Charlottetown

This month flew by so fast, I absolutely loved blogging my #DowntownWishList adventures again this year. I learned so much about Downtown Charlottetown and had the opportunity to meet so many talented, energetic and passionate individuals.

As Islanders, we are extremely lucky to have such a variety of local shops to choose from - there is something magical about visiting a shop and holding the items in your hand before buying them. When you buy local 67% of your dollars stay in Charlottetown, when you buy from a chain store 32% stay local and sadly when you buy online (as convenient as it is) 0% of your money stays in your community.

I am grateful for the outstanding work of Downtown Charlottetown Inc. a non-profit organization with the mandate to work with businesses to create and maintain a vibrant downtown through an established Business Improvement Area. Check out their website to learn about their other fantastic Downtown initiatives.

"Eckhart in the City" is looking very festive in Downtown Charlottetown :)

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday season and all the best in 2016!
