Embracing Community: Made Here's Journey
Welcome to Made Here, a retail store that is more than just a shop—it is a vibrant community where local products and talent shine. At Made Here, we are committed to thoughtfully curating locally-made retail products and bringing them to a broader audience, both within Canada and abroad. But our mission goes beyond selling exceptional goods; it encompasses mentoring youth, supporting charities, and creating a meaningful impact. As proud parents of two young toddlers ourselves, we understand the importance of setting an example and fostering a sense of pride and purpose. Join us on this journey as we explore the heartwarming story of Made Here and the values that guide us.
Curating Local Treasures
When you step into Made Here, you'll discover an array of one-of-a-kind products crafted by talented artisans from our community. We are passionate about showcasing the unique craftsmanship and creativity that exists here. Each item you find in our store is thoughtfully selected, reflecting our commitment to quality and authenticity. By supporting local artists and artisans, we not only bring their work to a wider audience but also contribute to the sustainability and growth of our community.
We believe that everyone deserves a chance to pursue their dreams and talents. That's why we are dedicated to mentoring youth and providing them with valuable opportunities. From internships to workshops, we strive to empower young individuals, helping them gain knowledge, skills, and experience. By fostering a supportive environment, we hope to inspire the next generation to follow their passions and find fulfillment in their chosen paths. But to be honest, getting to be a part of someone else's journey and making an impact, whether big or small, is awesome! Hey, let's be real here, we are a pretty cool place to internship at ;)
Building a Community
Made Here is more than just a store; it is a place where connections are forged and a sense of belonging is nurtured. We want to create a space where customers feel like they are part of a larger family—a community that celebrates local talent and values. We host events and workshops, collaborate with other businesses and organizations, and actively engage with our customers to foster meaningful relationships. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
for us, preserving culture isn't just important—it's absolutely essential. We hold our Filipino and Red River Métis heritage dear to our hearts and we're determined to pass it on to our children. We also want to create a space where every culture and community can thrive. We're committed to bringing together a diverse and inclusive collection of locally made products, carefully sourced and curated with fairness in mind. Our goal? To make a positive impact and be a place where everyone feels supported and valued.
Supporting Local Children's Charities
Since its inception, Made here has raised $20,000 for local children's charities. As we take over ownership of Made Here, we want to continue this commitment and we firmly believe in giving back to our community, especially when it comes to the well-being of our children. At Made Here, we will actively raise funds for local children's charities in-store and through our events, supporting initiatives that provide dreams, education, and healthcare.
Our Personal Journey
As parents ourselves, we understand the desire to create a better world for our children. Made Here began with a simple dream—to bring local talent and products to a wider audience and hopefully raise some money for local children's charities . But along the way, we realized that our purpose extended beyond business success. We wanted to inspire our children and teach them the values of compassion, community, and perseverance. Through our commitment to mentoring youth, supporting charities, and building a community, we hope to instill in our children the belief that doing what you love and following your passion can lead to a fulfilling and meaningful life.
At Made Here, we are dedicated to thoughtfully curated, locally made, fostering a sense of community, and creating opportunities for youth. We invite you to join us on this remarkable journey and be part of something bigger than just a retail store. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of local artisans, the younger generation, and our entire community.
