Sharing Local Love

3-minute read

An Open Letter To Our Community: As a local business and team of proud entrepreneurs, it can be difficult to ask for help. Yet as we see the numbers roll in and studies unfold, some of the facts are hard to swallow. The Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB) has released a study of nearly 9,000 small business owners and the report highlights that one in four owners said their business would not survive longer than one month if revenues dropped more than 50 percent. The report also indicated 43 percent of respondents reduced hours for staff and 20 percent have engaged in temporary layoffs. While we choose to temporarily close our retail doors to protect our vulnerable population and do our best to flatten that damn curve, we’re openly asking for your help, along with the government’s support, to stay afloat—and it’s not just us. It’s for the other local businesses we stand with. So, how can you help?

  • Purchase take-out meals from local restaurants.
  • Order online from your favourite local retailers.
  • Pre-purchase gift cards for future use.
  • Send notes of encouragement.
Despite these daunting numbers, we’re seeing our community of comrades rally like never before—and we’re here to do the same. We’re rounding up some of our favourite local shops in Edmonton and Calgary to make the most of your social-distancing escapades.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
