Why Shopping Local Matters
Support your friends, neighbours, and yourself. Invest in your community; help to create a stronger and healthier Dundas and Hamilton by keeping your money here
Two or three times as much money spent stays in the local economy when you buy goods and services from locally-owned businesses. Locally-owned businesses invest more in local labour, pay more local taxes, spend more time on community-based decisions and create local events. In doing so, they create more opportunities for all of us here in our community. Local business owners make more local purchases themselves.
Local stores help sustain vibrant, compact and walkable downtown centres—something that is being lost in other consumer environments.
One-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Dundas/Hamilton.
Local business owners live in and love their unique community; like Dundas. They are less likely to leave and are more invested in the future of the whole community. Local business owners participate in the community; they send their children to local activities like dance, hockey, soccer and work. And you as a customer can earnestly get to know the local owner. There's none of that in a big-box-store environment.
Ever tried returning an item you've purchased online? It can be a hassle, and it most likely costs you money in shipping. No thanks! Come into our store and, if you want to return an item you've purchased, enjoy a hassle-free return experience.
Online companies are most often found outside of your community; therefore, they don't contribute to the development of the Dundas/Hamilton community. Not local, many aren't even national.
Adventure Attic offers a relaxed atmosphere and a non-commissioned sales team so staff can spend time offering advice and answering questions. We offer quotes on any repairs, repairs on warrantied products, custom fitting packs, custom orders, and rentals.
Our way of giving back to you! Earn Attic Bucks with almost every purchase*; 2% of your sales total is automatically accumulated once you've registered with our customer database. Before you know it, you are redeeming your Attic Bucks for that something special that you had your eye on.
*Attic Bucks are not earned in some departments.
