Cheers to 2018! What a wonderful year it has been.
Thank you so much to every entrepreneur in our community who worked so hard all year long creating beautiful products and offering great services giving us incredible stories to tell about the businesses you’re building right here in Edmonton.
This year we told over 50 stories about how you collaborate and build brands that are growing. We are so proud to help tell your story.
We also want to reflect on the thousands of you who chose to shop local throughout the year whether that was by exploring the over 800 businesses in our Business Directory, picking up one of our over 8,000 Gifted catalogues, visiting a local market (maybe you came to our first Gifted market!) or shopping at a local retailer that displays an Edmonton Made badge on their storefront or website. Your support is vital for the individuals and families behind local businesses.
On behalf of the Edmonton Made team, THANK YOU! We are excited for what 2019 holds and look forward to what you’ll do next. In the meantime, kick back and enjoy one of these fine locally crafted cocktails collected by Mike Kendrick. Here’s to you!
