Fittedfast is passionate about innovation in the retail sphere by providing a simple online shopping experience where your local mall rests at your fingertips. In the era where e-commerce thrives, local store closures were becoming more common within the city of Toronto.
Upon recognizing these trends, Fittedfast was created to bridge the gap between online and in-store shopping with hopes of levelling the playing field for local businesses against giants like Amazon. As the lockdown softens, Fittedfast roots itself in the idea of resiliency within the city. Toronto can be a resilient city by absorbing economic and social shock against it (such as that of COVID-19), by allowing innovative processes to propel the city forward.
As we come together and invest in local businesses by shopping their merchandise online as opposed to shopping online internationally — we invest in our local streets, playgrounds, schools and hospitals. Fittedfast’s mission is to create a city that not only thrives in market, but most importantly, community.
Why Shop Local?
you help the environment
Buying local conserves energy & resources by way of less toxic emissions in the form of transportation; whereas shopping internationally is associated with heavy emission.
you keep your money local
For every $100 you spend at a mom & pop retail shop, $68 stays within the city
For every $100 spent a national chain found locally, $48 will stay in the community. When you shop from Amazon, or any other international online shop, your community gets close to nothing.
get your items delivered on-demand
Since items ordered are found locally, Fittedfast will deliver same-day or the following one.
Shorter distance = shorter delivery times — after all, who likes to wait?
you create jobs
Keeping retail alive is important to the employment sector. About 32% of all employment in Toronto is associated with retail stores.
Shopping local will keep citizens employed.
