Miller Encourages Giving A Gift To Your Community - Shop Local This Holiday Season

Earlier this week, Norm Miller, MPP Parry Sound-Muskoka rose in the Legislature, to encourage residents of Parry Sound-Muskoka to shop local this holiday season.

Miller told legislators that “Local Is the New Black,” but admitted that when his staff first suggested that slogan, he had to ask them what they were talking about.

Miller says that "of course, it means that local is the new fashion, the new trend. As we do our Christmas shopping, I hope this is a trend we will all follow, whether buying gifts, food or a treat for ourselves."

He encouraged residents of Parry Sound–Muskoka to support the many businesses that make and sell local products, adding that it isn’t just about local products; for those people who are hard to buy for, consider a local experience – a dinner at a local restaurant or tickets to a local attraction, or taking advantage of the staycation tax credit and treating someone to a weekend retreat at a local resort.

Miller added “Give a gift to your community. Shop local.”
