Get Involved

Thanks for your interest in being a part of the Shop Local Shop St. John movement!

There are loads of opportunities to support St. John’s local organizations – just remember that everytime you shop at a local store or tourist attraction, you’re helping to sustain what makes St. John such a great place to live.  Beyond that please consider:

  • Become a member: More than 100 members strong and growing, being a Shop Local Shop St. John member shows everyone around you how much you believe in this movement.
  • Being a volunteer: Even if you can only spare a few hours a month, as a volunteer organization your help is critical.
  • Shift your shopping:  Shifting just 10% of your current spending from chains to locally owned, independent businesses can make a huge difference!!  If everyone in St. John made the 10% shift, it would generate millions annually in new economic activity for the region and create new jobs.
  • Come to our events:  From our monthly EDC meeting to special events, meeting other people who are committed to the same ideals and sharing ideas and thoughts is the surest way to grow the movement.  Bring some friends along!
