David and Goliath: small, local business is more powerful than you’d think.

You have a social conscience. You do what you can to ensure that your Vancouver is healthy, beautiful, vibrant and strong. You make choices every day choices that reflect your priorities. You care about the environment, and you care about your commuity, and that’s why you make the decisions you do, day by day. You ride your bike to work, even in the rain. You shop locally, and you support the many businesses that give Vancouver so much character.

And that’s the thing. We are you. We share your community and make the very same choices. We drink local beer and eat in local restaurants and shop in the hood. We care about this city just like you do, and like you we pass on what we earn here in town instead of paying shareholder dividends to tax evading multinational corporations who prioritize funding offshore shell corporations. We do it because like you, we know that community matters. Bike Doctor is a small, locally owned and operated business, and we’re just like you. Like you, we stay abreast of the true threats to healthy cities and sustainable economies and we do what we can to stop them. We know what kind of monkey business the big box stores get up to just to avoid paying their fair share of taxes, and like you, we are smart enough to avoid them. Because places that are home to numerous locally owned businesses are more prosperous, sustainable, and resilient than those in which much of the economy is controlled by a few big corporations.

We take it one step further. The Doctor places a premium on local and Canadian products, so that you know for sure that your money will grow your economy. Bet on the little guy, and create a strong community fabric.
