ShopCity.com is excited to announce the launch of ShopSaskatoon.ca and new City Manager Tyson Steele. Tyson comes to the ShopCity.com family already well versed in the operation of a small business as the owner of Saskatoon's Modern Martial Arts Center. This week, ShopCity.com General Manager Rick Kloss (left) visited Tyson (right) to help launch ShopSaskatoon.ca.
We are excited to add Saskatoon to our growing family of over 30 Canadian cities that have joined the Shop Local movement. Over the next few months, Tyson and his team will be working hard to help locally-owned Saskatoon businesses connect with consumers in their community online. We are proud to have Tyson on the team to work with us to make shopping locally first as easy as possible in Saskatoon.
"I got interested in taking on the City Manager role in my attempt to find ways to better promote my gym online," says Tyson Steele. "It's such a competitive market and being a new, small business we struggled early on to be found online. I found ShopSaskatoon.ca and reached out to Colin and Nathan. After exchanging many emails with both them and other City Managers, I decided to take on the role! Saskatoon is such a strong market for local entrepreneurs so I knew something like this would be well received. A huge part of it for me, was seeing how supportive the team is of one another. I have never once felt that I am tackling this project on my own."
"All of us at ShopCity.com are really excited to have Tyson take ownership of ShopSaskatoon.ca! With his never-give-up attitude, experience as a small business owner and passion for Saskatoon, I am certain Tyson will be successful in this venture." says ShopCity.com founder, Colin Pape.
