Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce Launches New Buy Local Whitehorse Campaign

    The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce launched its new Buy Local Whitehorse campaign on June 29. The new campaign will focus on supporting and building stronger partnerships with local businesses.

    The Buy Local Whitehorse campaign will build on the chamber's "Look Inside" program, which was created to educate Yukoners on the economic benefits of supporting local business. The new program will pivot from education to promotion to help increase local business sales, which is essential as Whitehorse and the territory begin to reopen.

    Executive Director, Susan Guatto says, "This pandemic has been a challenging time for all of us, but particularly for people who have invested their lives in building the businesses that we rely on. Local businesses contribute to the lives of Yukoners, they support fundraising programs, sponsor teams and organizations, and volunteer to help wherever it is needed."

    The campaign will roll out over the next four months and will adapt to the needs of local businesses based on the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.
