Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighbourhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Wise Adventures is different things to different people. For parents, it's a place to safely leave kids and shop in the mall or go off on a date night, checking in occasionally via Wise Adventures' video-over-the-internet feature. For kids, though, Wise Adventures becomes a zone of discovery. Thousands of loose lego blocks sit ready to become helicopters, spaceships, used vacuum cleaner stores, or anything else out of the wildest imagination. Wise Adventures' instructors teach older kids computer skills in more structured sessions, including keyboarding and Microsoft Office. They also help kids with school work during private or group tutoring programs.
Wise Adventures doesn't exclude adults from its fantastic confines, however. They can attend birthday parties, which take on more than a dozen themes, including "Princess Tea Party" and "Hands on with Animals," which expands the guest list to include a corn snake and leopard geckos. Pottery painting, meanwhile, welcomes both kids and adults, and "social artworking" events let grown-ups chat and eat while they paint works of art.
