In 2016, the Town of Hinton in collaboration with the Hinton and Region Economic Development Coalition were proud to unveil #HintonFirst, a local movement to better Hinton, Alberta by encouraging community members to consider #HintonFirst prior to buying, selling, volunteering, or recreating.
HintonFirst acknowledges that businesses have a large stake in our community and a role to play in developing and supporting the ideas of #HintonFirst. Customers are looking for service, selection and value from local businesses. A #HintonFirst business strives to shine in these areas, and to accept feedback from customers on how to make their experience the best it can be. It also works to remind residents that when they buy locally, they are doing more than just making a purchase; they’re making an investment in their community. But #HintonFirst is also about much more than just shopping local. It’s about spending your time and your energy experiencing and supporting Hinton as your adopted or original hometown.
This new addition to #HintonFirst is a part of Economic Development continuing to work on, and develop, the #HintonFirst ideas and goals.
