Think Local First



Open East Hants Day!

Do not miss this opportunity! Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 28th 2016!

Check out our Open East Hants Day map to see who has already signed up!

Join the East Hants & Districts Chamber of Commerce and the Think Local First committee for a day of fun, food and shopping in East Hants.

Open East Hants day is a day for you, the people, the businesses, organizations and services to get to know just what is available to you in our community. We want the people of East Hants to feel good about supporting their community while getting acquainted with the people that work and play here.

The Think Local First committee will help promote Open East Hants but please think of ways you can promote it too.

*UPDATE* There will be an Open Market at the Scott Blois Parking lot in Elmsdale from 10 am-3 pm that day to accommodate businesses without storefronts. If you are interested in this please indicate that on your application. You will need to bring your own table/tent, etc. In the case of bad weather, the Elmsdale Fire Hall will be available! We will keep you posted on that closer to the day, so keep an eye on your email!
