Downtown cores serviced by BIA's (Business Improvement Associations) in small towns and city neighbourhoods have been negatively impacted by big on-line store competitors like Amazon. Local store-owners complain that shoppers come in to their store to look, but do not buy. Many of these shoppers go home, price compare named brands, and then buy online. How can local business compete?

The Richmond Hill Rotary Club has upgraded its Craft Beer Festival website to better profile the festival vendors and the overall feel of this fundraising event website.
The site offers vendors more than a space for their logo. The site design encourages visitors to click through to the vendor area, to learn more about each vendor, without leaving the site. This is a value added feature appreciated by participating vendors.

The Central Huron Agricultural Society has updated its Clinton Spring Fair website in time for the June 2018 fair.
The new website features a mobile friendly design that makes site navigation quicker, with an uncluttered feel. There is much going on during the 3 day fair, so letting people know how to get the information they are looking for is a website design challenge. RBN Web Services has been servicing the needs of the fair for the past six years, so familiarity with the event was most helpful in designing the new site.
