ABOUT US

Hi, I am the founder of goshoplocal.com.

Frankly, I have always felt a competitive spirit and a resolve to build an idea into a business. The journey commenced early in the pandemic when I began to observe pallets of Amazon products (sometimes 3 pallets a day) at the front door of our apartment building. As a result of 40 years of business ownership, I deeply felt the pain each package represented and the untimely impact the pandemic-born shopping habits had on Canadian businesses. Thus, I started to imagine ways to efficiently increase their online exposure.

 

To start, I surrounded myself with an incredible group of
younger eCommerce and creative professionals who have been instrumental in guiding the development of this new company. Together our focus is to put the best Canadian owned businesses right in front of you, and to be your favourite Canadian place to shop.

 

I am proud to represent a strong community of like minded entrepreneurs on goshoplocal.com and stoked to be part of this journey. I envision that some day our community may boast the largest footprint across Canada.
