This year, the Kelowna Visitor Centre team was able to greatly expand its local consignment retail program to help support local entrepreneurs, artists, and businesses. This aligns well with the Visitor Centre's goal to connect visitors and residents with local businesses to generate larger spend and economic impact in the communities of the Central Okanagan.

Approximately 30 new suppliers were brought on this year, bring the total to more than 80, with over 860 locally-created and inspired products available. Thanks to the hard work of our Visitor Experience team of staff and volunteers, all of these products were available in the centre and listed in our online store, loveforkelowna.com, in time for the holidays. To see a list of all local suppliers and their products, please visit the Support Local section of our online store

To help the community shop local, we will be continuing to offer in person services at the Kelowna Visitor Centre along with free local delivery, local pickup, and flat rate shipping for the remainder of the year. All orders placed by end of day on December 22 will be delivered within the Central Okanagan before Christmas Day.

Through the holidays, the Kelowna Visitor Centre will be open seven days per week from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exception of December 24, 25, 31, and January 1, when the building will be closed.
