The Not Amazon platform is perfect for those looking to support local businesses (in either Toronto or Halifax) but finding it difficult to do so with new restrictions that prohibit in-store shopping for non-essentials. Many citizens are worried that this second lockdown may cause unjust hardships on small, independent businesses and are looking for ways to support their local economy in lieu of giant corporations.
Not Amazon lets users find businesses that are offering curbside pickup or shipping amid the new restriction and list these businesses both alphabetically and by category. The platform leads users directly to the business' website, ensuring the entire payment is going directly to the business in question without a middle man.
