Support Local Project: December 2021

Support Local Project: December 2021
December 31, 2021 Marco Mion

Every week for the year 2021, instead of purchasing a treat from the grocery store, I have decided to support a local business by trying out their food, drink, service or product they have to offer. Although I haven’t posted all the local businesses that I have supported, I’ve consciously and where it made sense tried to shift my spending at local businesses throughout the year. I will continue this effort into 2022 personally and at work.

Here is a recap for the local businesses that I’ve got to support this past December:

Supply and Demand

Always great coming back for (late) birthday dinner!

Anthony’s Pizza

Norda Running Shoes

Running through the winter last year with no grip shoes and barefoot shoes got a little dicey.

I was looking for a shoe with traction, that would be functional from the street to the trail. I stumbled across Norda and I’m glad I did!

These shoes also doubled down as my personal reward for running a 5KM and 10KM run every month in 2021!

Pearl House

Haven’t been here since I lived with my parents! One of my favourite Cantonese and Szechuan style restaurants.

I hope you enjoyed these posts throughout the year. If you did, feel free to subscribe to my newsletter that I plan to send out quarterly next year on cool local businesses, photographs I’m taking, music Im listening to, books I’m reading, podcasts I’m listening to and projects I’m working on.
All the best in 2022.
