OCTO – Call to arms! Support Local

Published January 13, 2022

OCTO – Call to Arms!

“Hey peoples, Octo here. You know, supporting local is more important than ever. Local business needs your love. And, your support. Your purchases, that money, stays within the community. Like keeping it in the family!”

“We, over here at GLB came up with a killer idea called “Octo’s Call To Arms”. It’s simple, we wanna hear about your favourite local cafes, bakeries, restaurants and take out joints.

Just jump on yer phone, record a quick VIDEO suggestion & either post it (and tag @greatlakesbeer) or DM us and we’ll share it. Make sure to use the hashtag – #PropUpYourNeighbours”

Yesterday, team GLB posted videos from staff members with their suggestions and recommendations on Twitter and Instagram stories, tagging businesses along the way, and now we want your help spreading the word.

“C’mon, do yer neighbourhood a solid. Shop local.”

A kind message from your pal, OCTO, and yer friends at GLB.


Our staff provided names of restaurants and shops from Toronto to Guelph to Ottawa, which will hopefully allow you to discover a new spot in your community.

Now is the time to continue to support local eateries, shops, small businesses and we encourage you to prop up your neighbours during this crazy time in Ontario.

With love,
Team GLB
