Retail plays a major role in contributing to the vibrancy of our city and making it a great place to live and do business. However, retailers in Toronto have been hard hit by the pandemic and many are facing extinction. NAIOP GTA wants to do our part to support them and ensure their survival long after the pandemic. A few NAIOP members (Jonathan Peretz, Ashley Wedlock, Lucas Manuel, Aly Damji, Ali Fieder, Allison Gilks) have started an Instagram account called @inspireTOretail to do just that. This account provides a way for our industry to come together and support our retailers by sharing where we all shop and eat.
Here is how it works:
- Follow @inspireTOretail through your personal Instagram account
- Tag @inspireTOretail when you post on Instagram – we encourage you to post stories of local boutiques, restaurants etc.
- Use our hashtag #inspireTOretail when posting to help spread the word!
