WECM’s Local Holiday Shopping Guide

Want to support our local economy while holiday gift-giving this year? Check out our new Local Holiday Shopping Guide where we showcase some online and retail shops, upcoming markets and even some gift and subscription boxes that carry many women-owned and partnered products. We challenge everyone to #supportlocalmb this season and make your purchases count towards the sustainability of Manitoba’s small- and medium-sized business community!

Due to the new restricted provincial response level: please contact business owners for newest COVID-19 updates prior to visiting their retail locations.
