As more people are shopping online or having items delivered during the COVID-19 pandemic, White Rock City Council wants to encourage residents and visitors to buy from local businesses and “Shop the Rock.”
According to the White Rock BIA, White Rock, the City by the Sea, has more than 300 small businesses, in addition to home-based businesses.
White Rock is fortunate to have award-winning, provincially and nationally recognized businesses that offer fantastic goods and services, ranging from hair products, restaurants, bakeries, health food stores, gourmet chocolate, home décor, flowers, craft beer, health food, mechanics and the arts.
Local businesses are often friends and neighbours who live and work in the community and many are hard hit by closures and reduced customer visits due to the pandemic.
