Support Local: BIA Bucks

January 30, 2021

We have a wonderfully active Business Improvement Association in the Hastings-Sunrise area who do some great community building and engagement activities. A really cool initiative that they have recently launched is a BIA buck program where they are investing in the drive to shop-local by providing BIA Bucks: $10 for any $20+ purchase that can then be used locally for other small businesses. We have a limited number of BIA bucks to give away, starting February 1st!

Here’s the details:

BIA Bucks
Participating businesses are giving out $10 BIA Bucks those who spend $20 or more! The $10 BIA Bucks is for future use at any of the participating businesses in the East Village until March 15th, 2021. Each participating business will return the redeemed BIA Bucks to be reimbursed by the BIA!

Participating Businesses:

To help spread the love we will be handing out one $10 BIA buck for any $20+ purchase, with a one per day per customer limit. There is no minimum for redeeming your BIA bucks, we just ask that you use it to explore the hood and shop at one of our participating neighbouring establishments! Come by and support some awesome local businesses!


We have some pretty cool businesses in this area. Check out how ahead of the curve our neighbours, Iron Dog Book and The Learnary are:

    Is this offer only on in-store purchases? I placed a web order for pickup hoping it would qualify, but I forgot to ask when I picked it up 🙂

      Unfortuantely these are handed out in store; but if you purchased online and did not recieve it, just ask one of our staff when you come in to pick up your order.
