“Paul Slaymaker knows donating a box of used shoes every week to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside won’t bring new customers through the doors of his Runner’s Den shop in Port Moody. But he believes his efforts to help others and be involved in the community have been a key reason he’s been able to keep his business going for 18 years.
On Nov. 16, Slaymaker and several other local business people will discuss why doing good in the community is good for business at a special Biz Talks event that wraps up Shop Local Port Moody’s third annual Five Fun Work Weeks to celebrate the city’s business community and offer them tools to become even more successful.”
