Businesses have a large stake in our community and a role to play in developing and supporting the ideas of #HintonFirst. Customers are looking for service, selection and value from local businesses. A #HintonFirst business strives to shine in these areas, and to accept feedback from customers on how to make their experience the best it can be.
Businesses need to take just as active a role in #HintonFirst as consumers. Just the same as consumers are expected to consider local options before heading out of the community, business need to understand that the onus is on them to provide competitive service, selection, and pricing to the consumers that are coming to them.
As well, wherever possible, a business is asked to consider sourcing their goods through local suppliers, and to make help to support local non-profit groups.
