Harvey & Vern’s Lime Soda flavour at Brown’s #supportlocalstittsville

Brown’s Independent on Stittsville Main Street has about 50 cases of the new Harvey & Vern’s Lime Soda. When I went in on Saturday it was right at the front next to the sushi bar.

Harvey & Vern’s is produced and bottled locally, and owner Paul Meek lives in Stittsville.

You can also get a bottle at Quitters and at the Cheshire Cat.

Found these at Brown's Independent on #Stittsville Main. #supportlocalstittsville

We’ve started a new LinkedIn networking group for Stittsville and area business owners, entrepreneurs and managers. You can join us here.

I’m also a member of a Wednesday morning networking group. We meet at 7:30am at Gaia Java every week. If you’d like more information please email me at feedback@stittsvillecentral.ca

The goal of both groups: help to connect and support local businesses.
