Niagara Ontario Canada residents being discouraged from shopping in the US

Niagara Ontario Canada residents are being encouraged to do less shopping across the border in the US, and more shopping at local Niagara Ontario businesses. D. W. Howard Realty sells both commercial and residential real estate in Niagara, so we see the effects that cross-border shopping has on our local economy.

The reasoning is that the Canadian taxes we pay on our goods go right back into community programs, health care, etc. Local shopping, especially of locally-produced goods, boosts our Niagara Ontario economy. It encourages jobs and employment in the local economy. You will also save gas by shopping closer to home.

The average Niagara Canada resident spends $72.00 on a same-day trip across the border, and takes 4 same-day trips per year.

Niagara residents can pledge to take 1 less trip per year over the border, and in return receive discounts and coupons at local merchants.
