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.

Mantra Beauty Bar
Mantra Beauty Bar helps clients of all ages relax and feel refreshed and beautiful, with services ranging from eyelash extensions and massages for adults, to princess-for-a-day spa parties for kids. Visitors to the welcoming space won't get a whiff of chemical smells such as ammonia or poisonous barbicide, but only the soothing, natural scents of aromatherapy and organic beauty products. At the beauty bar, stylists and aestheticians treat hair and skin to men's and women's haircuts, threading and waxing, and cleansing facials and back treatments. Visitors treat themselves to an exfoliating body wrap or stress-melting massage for much-needed rest and relaxation, or hop in a warm infrared sauna to banish toxins and promote healing.
