- The fuzzy feeling you get knowing you are supporting local business and Canadian companies.
When you shop at LB you are helping stimulate our local economy, but you are also supporting our families. In a way, your shopping helps stay at home mompreneurs who create our merchandise to stay home with their children, sends a little girl to dance class or a little boy to swimming. Look at you, supporting your community!
- “I saw this online, but after shipping and customs it was way too expensive.”
We’ve all been there. You’re shopping online and add the items to your cart… only to realize upon clicking check out that after the exchange rate, customs and or shipping, you don’t love your purchases as much as you thought you did, so you close the window faster than your kid throws their food on the floor at supper time.
- “I was only in for one thing, I swear.”
Without a doubt that is one of the most common things said at the store…and we laugh because we’ve all been there. (So much so that one of our staffers jokes that she doesn’t need a paycheck, because it all gets spent at the store anyways!) Sure, you’re only coming in for that must have t-shirt you saw in the window, but then you see that we carry a lot of our clothes up to 5T and you realize how cute your kids would be in matching t-shirts.
- The mom win you achieve when you get something useful AND baby safe, like the all natural bug repellent or the oxybenzone free sunscreen.
Mom wins = that feeling you get when it seems like you’ve actually got a handle on parenting. Those moments can sometimes be few and far in between. Getting ready to leave the house is a task in and of itself, let alone making sure your diaper bag is stocked with everything you might need for a day out. So, when you manage to find a good bug repellent made up entirely of ingredients you can pronounce, it is a well-deserved mom win.
- The moment when you recognize a fellow LB shopper (#bitssquad) by something they have and smile because it’s like you’re a part of a club.
It’s that knowing smile or small nod to the mom in the line at the grocery store when you recognize your little ones’ are wearing the same bright yellow Stonz rainboots. Or when you recognize someone’s diaper bag as the same one you had your eye on at the store a few weeks earlier. Instant friends. (Or sometimes frenemies if she bought the bag you had every intention of buying.)
- Finding that awesome piece of clothing that doesn’t look like it’s Maternity or meant for Breastfeeding…
But guess what? It is! And the best part? Once you’re done wearing it for what it’s designed for, you’ll still wear it… and not in the same way that you use your maternity pants for Thanksgiving dinner because it’s got the stretchy waistband.
- Buy all the things!
We won’t lie, we love it when you buy our stuff. And we know sometimes, it is possible to go overboard. But it’s a good kind of overboard, because wouldn’t you know it, just when you say you won’t come back for awhile…. you get a six-box gift card in the mail…. And who doesn’t love free money?
