About Us

“The Local Gate” initiative's core mission is to build a local marketplace that supports local stores and vendors in Fort McMurray, AB.

In society today, local small businesses are left in the dust due to large corporations taking over the market. The Local Gate, founded by Hichem Aidi on behalf of Aidi inc wants to change this narrative for local businesses.

The goal is to keep our local businesses open for the long run. Please think about the Fort McMurray community before shopping online from large corporations

The Local Gate hopes you choose to shop here instead!
