We want to continue to highlight small businesses who are taking action, amending their playbooks to show value and those who are working towards initiatives to keep us safe and fed amid the changing world around us. Check out another eight local businesses you can support straight from your couch:
What’s that old saying? When life gives you lemons... you make a virtual market! We’re big market fans, one of our favourites is Little Modern Market. Just because we’re socially distancing doesn’t mean we can’t shop... are we right?! From May 2nd-9th shop online from over a hundred different local vendors and small businesses. Use the code LMM2020 and see what juicy goodies you can wrangle up!
Flex your creativity and learn a new hobby - ain’t all of us got time for that... are we right?!

Get your Zen on with virtual yoga classes on HotShop’s NEW HotShop at Home online portal. There’s a lot of content on social media and the web, tune out downward dog and stretch it out with a variety of teachers from HotShop. No matter your fitness mood, choose from flowy hip opener classes to lung and muscle burners in HotShop’s sculpt classes or chill out with a slow Yin.
