First Nation store keeps dollars at home, builds employee confidence
One business in Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island is offering its community more than a place to get great bargains.
They also offer to teach service skills people will need to be successful in life.
Your Dollar Store With More, a Canada-wide chain, has a franchise on the reserve, offering the community a place to shop and, in turn, helps to train staff to engage with the public and keep money in the community.
Manager Leslie Manitowabi-Recollet said the store has been more than a convenient place to shop. It provides service industry training and teaches staff to have pride in their workplace.
