Shop Local, Eat Local

Welcome to Black Friday 2020... Another edition of unchecked consumerism! We're not against shopping, for obvious reasons, but if 2020 has taught us anything it's that we should re-evaluate the way we do things. This pandemic has hit many people, brands, shops and small businesses hard. Here in Montreal the restaurant industry has been particularly affected, especially following the second recent shutdown.

One of the things we enjoy the most when we were able to travel is discovering a city's essence through its culinary offerings. Letting a chef tell a story through their food is one of the most exciting things you can do. Montreal is no different. In fact, we would argue that we have one of the best restaurant scenes out there. The last thing we want to see happen is to lose the soul of our beautiful city because of COVID-related restrictions putting small shops and restaurants out of business. We've already seen far too many permanent restaurant closures, even some of our long standing institutions, and we don't want to see any more. This is why this Black Friday is about showing support to some of our favourite local spots. We want to use this Black Friday to give a little something back to the industry that has given us so much.

So this is what we're going to do. We will be offering you 20% back on your Black Friday purchases* in the form of a gift card to a local restaurant. On all orders of $100 or more, you'll be able to pick the restaurant from our list of favs and get to enjoy a great meal on us. We recognize some of our best customers are not here in Montreal so we will also offer you the choice of getting that 20% back on a gift card to shop at Clark Street Mercantile. You can choose to use that gift card for yourself, or give it to someone else. Following your purchase online, we will be in touch with the details on your selection and the procedure to pick up your card. It's a small gesture, but we hope you'll be on board. Every little bit helps.

 

Our List:

 

"Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from those from the get-go." -Anthony Bourdain
