Encouraged by Jan Mowbray, Mike Cluett and Jennifer Brooks at the Rurban Fringe (here and here), I have spent a few weeks shopping almost exclusively in Milton. I even bought clothes and shoes in Milton. I also went just a little out of my way to buy Canadian-made products, instead of imports (provided that the quality was same or better and the price was in the same range approximately).
I live in Milton, I work in Milton and now I shop exclusively in Milton as well, buying Canadian as much as I can. Feels good! Try it.
