FREDERICTON – Ray Harris, the owner of Data Wazo, is putting Fredericton businesses on the map with his Shop Local Fredericton web application. The project was created to act as a resource for people looking for local businesses to shop from during the holiday season and beyond.
“People think there’s a certain item they just can’t get in the city and because of that they immediately go online. If we can make that information a little more readily available, it might encourage people to spend their money in the city,” said Harris.
While the map currently features over 100 local businesses, Harris hopes to add additional local online locations in the near future.
The map allows users to filter by category based on what they’re searching for, key phrases, and the part of the city where they want to shop.
