Everything gets better with a little love.
When you shop at an indie business, everyone wins. Love Downtown PG is about making it easier to shop small first. Love Downtown PG aims to capture and promote the collective spirit of our retailers and ultimately do away with oft-heard comment, “What a great place, I had no idea it was here!”
Did you know?
For every $100 that you spend locally, up to $48 stays in our community, as compared to just $14 when you shop at a big box or chain store, and keeping our dollars circulating locally is key to the economic health of our community.
Love Downtown PG is a program designed specifically for locally owned and independently operated retail services and shops in Downtown Prince George. Presently, we have over 57 Downtown Prince George businesses signed up, you can find these businesses and their stories at www.LoveDowntownPG.com
The Love Downtown PG project is made possible through funding by Northern Development Initiative Trust in partnership with Downtown Prince George . You can check out other northern communities websites at Love Northern BC.

The participation fee is $100 per business and includes:
Professional photography session – Nothing tells a story quite like photographs. Quality images of you, your business and its products are an important piece of your marketing efforts. The photographs we take will be available for you to use as you wish to promote your business in other ways including your online and print media.
Compelling & engaging storytelling – Your online profile will feature the professionally written story of your business that showcases your products and services. The written component will also highlight your story as an entrepreneur and the various ways you contribute to your community.
Useful and beautiful online presence – Your online profile features many tools to make it easier for your customers to connect with you including a local product finder, links to your social media channels, a map showing your location and an events calendar.
