ShopOttawa.com is the #1 Local Online Marketing Platform and Directory in the area, with more than 50,000 visits per month. The site contains a directory of thousands of local businesses, products and services and a comprehensive selection of coupons, deals, events, links to businesses websites and social media pages.

At the onset of the pandemic, Mayor Jim Watson put together a Economic Partners Task Force who identified ShopOttawa.com as Ottawa’s first resource in the Ottawa Buy Local Movement. You can read all about there findings here!

We are a local online marketplace and directory that features only local businesses with their own dedicated web page, the products and services they offer and offer huge SEO value. The site is accessible from both computers and smart phones via a mobile version.

ShopOttawa.com’s community marketplace and directory enables consumers to buy online for in-store pick-up or delivery, read and write business reviews, obtain online coupons, view restaurant menus, find out when businesses are open and how they can be paid, as well as contact business owners via email.

As you can imagine, all of these features offer both businesses and consumers tons of value, but the real power of ShopOttawa.com is the community marketing campaign that involves hundreds of businesses working together on social media that remind locals to shop locally at ShopOttawa.com.

By coming together under a common message that also drives people to a web destination where they can take action, ShopOttawa.com harnesses the collective power of the local business community to give independents a voice that is even louder than the big corporate brands that dot the landscape.

Because local independent businesses generally keep more of the money spent with them within the community than corporate chains (45% for independent vs. 15% for chains), shopping with local businesses leads to a stronger local economy.

This benefits everyone in the community as strong local economies provide greater access to opportunities and also more funding for local initiatives like parks and recreation, services and infrastructure, health and education.

By informing local shoppers about the choices available to them, as well as the numerous benefits of shopping locally, ShopOttawa.com aims to influence residents to spend more of their money locally instead of sending their dollars outside of the community where it will benefit someone else’s area instead of our own.

ShopOttawa.com is committed to The Buy Local Movement and offers a generous free package along with very affordable paid packages that bring small businesses compelling value for their marketing dollar.
