Your no fuss holiday shopping guide

WINDSOR, N.S. — Ever year we hear about the importance of shopping local — and indeed the pundits, politicians, and economists all seem to agree that a dollar spent at a local shop goes much further than one spent at a big box store.

With that in mind, we’re highlighting some of the local merchants available right here in Windsor – West Hants.

This is not meant to be a definitive list of all stores across the entire region, and doesn’t wade into the busy restaurant industry. The intent is to highlight some of the stores in our area so residents don’t need to commute or turn to the Internet to check off gifts from their shopping list.
