The Kindersley and District Chamber of Commerce is launching an initiative to get the attention of online shoppers, and the plan involves a new website.
Rick Miller, who sits on the chamber’s board of directors, is spearheading the program being referred to as ShopKindersleyOnline. The chamber issued a letter to the whole community to let people know about the program and why the chamber is taking on the initiative.
The letter states that the initiative is to encourage shopping local in Kindersley and to help stimulate economic development for businesses. An increase in online shopping takes away sales from small businesses and chamber officials hope to disrupt the trend with the organization’s new process, the letter explains.
According to the letter, the ShopKindersleyOnline website will help to inform shoppers about all the products available at local businesses and to disrupt the tide of online purchases that are being made by residents.For more on this story, please see the Apr. 4 print edition of The Clarion.
