Bricks & clicks: Digital Main Street shows how retail stores & digital can grow together

By Gord McIntosh
Digital Communications Consultant
Digital Main Street provides main street small businesses with digital-readiness assessments, recommendations for quick wins, information and resources and $2,500 grants to qualifying businesses to bring on digital tools and techniques.

Dennis Van Staalduinen thinks that adding digital to traditional bricks and mortar is a new beginning.

In fact, the Executive Director of the huge and trendy Wellington West Business Improvement Area (BIA) just west of downtown Ottawa sees nothing but growth ahead.

That’s because bricks and clicks can go together to grow a customer base, with a little help from an innovative partnership program between the Ontario BIA Association (OBIAA) and the Province of Ontario.
