Delta is home to three thriving communities, each offering a unique variety of retail stores, service businesses, and restaurants.

Receive personalized service
Interact with business owners and employees that know and stand behind their products, and will go the extra mile to help you find what you’re looking for. Friendly, knowledgeable staff can provide a positive shopping experience while you search for the perfect gift.

Support local economy
When you shop local, you’re supporting business owners and employees that live and work in your town. Not only does this contribute to the development of a flourishing town centre, it also creates more job opportunities for family, friends, and neighbours.

Gain access to unique gifts
Find the perfect gift for the person that has everything. Local businesses give you access to unique products that you can see, try, and trust before purchasing. You can even find handmade items, designed by local artists, that can’t be found online or in a big-box store.

Support local non-profit organizations
Non-profit organizations rely on the generous support of locally-owned businesses. Shopping local helps businesses succeed and, in turn, continue to donate to the non-profit organizations that matter the most to Delta.

Learn what is available in your town
Skip the shipping. Skip the driving. Find the perfect gift close to home and discover what’s available in your town so that you don’t have to go online or drive long distances for future purchases.
