The historic harbour town of Thornbury is bursting with business. Celebrations abound with five new retail businesses collaborating to host their grand opening parties on Saturday, November 20th staring at 4pm and going until 8pm.
This summer saw the launch of five new businesses in Thornbury, each offering unique products to enhance the boutique feel of this charming harbour town and contributing to the economic development of its active main street.
Grand Openings include Gaia, women’s fashions featuring Canadian designers using eco-friendly fabrics, Evolution for Men, all things masculine, Wonderactive Art Shop, interactive sculpture and imaginative art classes, Mantra Yoga Studio, all kinds of classes for all types of students, and The Cheese Gallery, cheese and gourmet foods featuring a tasting bar.
Through innovation, diversity, and a commitment to service, Thornbury has bounced out of the recession with new vitality and new businesses (with more currently in development).
With the economy growing stronger, bridge restoration nearing completion, and Hwy 26 construction drawing to an end, these new shops and studios are well positioned for a successful winter season. Building on a strong summer season, Thornbury retailers are working together as ambassadors of the town to share information and marketing, giving visitors and residents alike great reasons to shop locally.
In this cooperative spirit, Pamper and Soothe, famous for its European flair and unique gifts, invited the Grand Opening participants to host their festivities on the evening of its annual Christmas Customer Appreciation night -- November 20th.
To celebrate, everyone is opening their doors with specials, promotions, and a party in town! Ellen Anderson, Mayor of the Town of the Blue Mountains, will be on hand at 4pm for ribbon cutting ceremonies to officially welcome the new businesses to the area.
The historic harbour town of Thornbury is located on Hwy 26 between Collingwood and Meaford in the Town of the Blue Mountains. The Grand Opening event is another feature of Thornbury’s year round activity. Upcoming events include Tree Lighting on Dec. 3rd and Old Fashioned Christmas on Dec 11th. Please visit our website.
