Shop Wainwright!

Support Wainwright’s economy, shop local now! 

Wainwright’s locally owned businesses are an integral part of our community and a huge part of what makes us fantastic!

Shopping locally not only helps promote the local economy, but also supports the strength and growth of our community including events and not for profit organizations. Each time you shop local you help a business stay open which in turn pays taxes to benefit important Town provided services like our local RCMP, our Volunteer Fire Department, senior services, the Public Library, road maintenance and parks and contributes to the quality of life you enjoy. Your money helps to employ neighbours allowing them to put food on their table, pay their mortgage, and put kids in activities.

We can all help our local businesses!

Here’s how:
• Dine-in or order takeout
• Purchase items and services locally
• Buy gift cards
• Offer word-of-mouth recommendations to your family/friends
• Leave a positive review
