We hear all the time…” buy local”, “shop local”, “support local business”. But what does it really mean? To us, it is about donating a percentage of every dollar earned back into our community and that’s a privilege we take very seriously. When you shop local, you are supporting local teams, schools, arts programs, service clubs and local charities.
On behalf of our friendly cashiers, customer service representatives, the guys that load your truck and deliver your materials and all our staff, we wish to thank you, our loyal customers. The donations and sponsorships Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre makes are because of you.
Over the years, it has been so rewarding for us; at Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre to support:
- YWCA – Walk a Mile in her Shoes
- CMHA – Merrett Home Hardware Run for Mental Health
- Breast Cancer – Dragon boat Races
- Cancer Society – Bras Around the Building and Mudmoiselle
- PRHC Radiation Bunker
- Peterborough Musicfest
- James Players local theatre
- 4th Line Theatre
- Peterborough Canoe Museum
- Rotary Club
- Lions Club
- Peterborough Pete’s
- Peterborough Lakers Lacrosse
- And over 50 different fundraisers for local families in need, local churches, teams and schools
In addition to financial donations, Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre supplies materials, at cost to support local not-for-profit organizations for special projects as well as encourages our staff to volunteer with their own favourite charities and organizations.
Next time, you hear the words “buy local” or “shop local”, remember what it really means… making a difference right here in Peterborough and surrounding area. A place we love to call home.
