Online shopping can be overwhelming with so many options to choose from. And these days, it’s more important to support local than ever before. Whether you’re supporting by adding to cart, recommending to a friend, or following on social media, your choice to support a local business will have a direct impact on your community!
So why should you support local over a big company? We can think of a few reasons!
You can expect unique products crafted with you in mind when you shop local. At Son of a Woodcutter, all of our furniture pieces are built-to-order, from our dining tables to custom desks. Each piece is unique – no two pieces are exactly alike, and that just adds to the character of your furniture. We often create custom pieces for clients who are looking for a specific design, size, wood species or colour.
Quality of Craftsmanship
Local shops will provide a quality of craftsmanship that you just won’t get with big box stores. You can typically expect a higher quality when it comes to handmade items. Each step of the crafting process is approached with special attention to ensure it’s completed to top standards. At Son of a Woodcutter we value attention to detail and building with care – from sourcing and selecting the best lumber, all the way through the process to hand finishing each piece.
You won’t ever experience the same level of customer service with a big box store as you would with a local business. When you shop local, we see you for you – not just as another number. We spend a lot of time communicating with our customers, getting to know your requirements so that we can create the perfect piece for your home.
Local businesses are owned and operated by your very own neighbours! Supporting local businesses helps to develop a sense of community and enrich communities. Small businesses make up the face of your city, charming tourists and adding personality and character to the community. By supporting small businesses you can show pride in your community and your city, all while putting your hard-earned dollars back into the community. You’re also helping to create jobs in your community.
Supporting the Local Economy
Did you know? For every $100 you spend at a local business, $68 will stay in the community. It’s important to shop local to support your local economy. Local businesses are also more likely to use or source from other local businesses and services. It’s a win-win! At Son of a Woodcutter, all of our tables are built with locally, sustainably sourced Ontario wood. We also love to work with Toronto interior designers on local commercial and residential projects!
