Edmonton Made: How to support local while #SocialDistancing
Our good friends at Edmonton Made have been busy through this difficult time supporting local businesses and products in any way they can. They have a great article about the ways one local business is still serving our community.

The doors may be shut and the lights off, but Matthew Stepanic, co-owner of Glass Bookshop, is as busy as ever. To keep his independent bookstore afloat during the COVID-19 outbreak, Stepanic and his business partner Jason Purcell began offering complimentary delivery to customers in Edmonton and the surrounding area, as they temporarily closed their physical location in City Centre Mall downtown and moved the bookshop entirely online.
Edmonton Made is a program and a platform that enhances the exposure of locally-based businesses. During this difficult time, they continue to support local businesses by telling stories, like the ones on their website, and encouraging Edmontonians to shop the online version of Gifted, their annual gift catalogue.
