One Less Trip Initiative

Shopping local is good for everyone. It keeps dollars local, saves you time and money on trips, and lets the owner know they’ve found a great business community! Check our latest video below.

The “One Less Trip” initiative, launched by Battle River Alliance for Economic Development (BRAED), is designed to help Battle River businesses survive and thrive by inspiring small shifts in consumer spending patterns. These shifts are achieved through education, municipal engagement and incentive programs like contests and special events.

Business Owner Toolkit

Business Owners looking to get involved can get their own promotional “One Less Trip” Toolkit to promote the benefits of shopping local. These Toolkits include window decals, posters, and guidelines to help businesses utilize the message/ logo in their own ads, websites, social media, receipts etc.

Access your complete Toolkit by contacting BRAED at
