Support local. It’s a phrase we hear so often, especially in the Okanagan valley. Of course, that’s easy to do when it comes to frequenting restaurants and boutiques. But what about when it comes to building a boat dock and lift? Did you know that some of the Shoreline lifts are locally designed and manufactured, right here in Kelowna, BC? It’s true!

Here’s everything you need to know about supporting local when it comes time to add a new dock or lift to your lakefront home.

Why is it important to support local businesses?

Supporting a local business can mean big benefits for the local economy. In fact, studies show that for every $100 dollars spent locally, $60 to $70 stays in the local economy. Now, if you were to spend that same $100 at a multinational corporation, just $14 would stay in the Okanagan. With numbers like these, it’s eye-opening to see where you should spend your hard-earned dollars.

How does Shoreline support local businesses?

At Shoreline, we live and love that Okanagan lifestyle. When founder Bob Jones first set out to bring high-quality docks and marinas to the residents of the valley, he knew he wanted to give back to the community as much as he could. He recognized that the community was the driving force behind his passion, and he wanted to thank the community for raising him and allowing him to live his passion while providing for himself and his family.

With these ideals in mind, Jones created a community-minded company that strongly contributes to the community through both volunteerism and financial donations. Wherever possible, Shoreline purchases local products, hires local employees, and donates both time and money at several community events throughout the year.

Some of those events and causes include:

  • Big White Ski Club
  • Okanagan Dream Rally
  • Fisherman’s Pier in Peachland

A Local Product to be Proud of

Besides enriching and supporting the local community, we’ve always been committed to improving the foreshores of Okanagan Lake. After all, we know the lake, we love the lake, and we respect the lake. With these values in mind, we set out to provide our clients with a locally designed and manufactured boat lift that meets all the requirements a boat lover would want while remaining environmentally friendly. And when it came time to take the design to market, we hired a local manufacture to create these user-friendly lifts to help keep the local economy thriving.
