The Queen Street West business improvement area (BIA) is giving Torontonians a new incentive to shop local.
The BIA has launched a new campaign, called #LoveonQueen, to support small businesses amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Every day throughout the month of February, the Queen Street West BIA is giving away a $50 gift card to a different shop within its catchment area, which stretches from Simcoe Street to Bathurst Street.
The Riverside BIA on Queen Street East is participating in the #LoveonQueen campaign as well.
On Sundays, the two team up, and the prize jumps to $200.
Take part in #LoveOnQueen and support over 400 local Queen Street businesses in February.

To enter the day’s giveaway, visit the BIA’s website and open a virtual advent calendar, revealing which business is offering up the gift card.
You earn a new entry by performing small acts of support, such as following the business on social media or commenting on a post.
The giveaway closes at midnight each evening, and the winner is announced the next day around noon.
Past prizes have included vouchers to Planta, Starbucks, and So Hip.
There are still 26 days left of February, giving you 26 more chances to win and support local.
