The atmosphere at Country Landing has always provided shoppers with a friendly, ‘good natured fun’ experience. Country Landing started, by the original owners over ten years ago, in an old hardware store and has become one of the mainstays of Collingwood’s Downtown.
Country Landing has evolved into a destination store where one can find gifts for nearly all on the list. Hunting Country Landing for rustic furniture, art work or finishing-touch accessories to decorate the home or seasonal retreat has become part of many an afternoon outing for those in the Collingwood area.

Country Landing changed hands late last year and the new owners are making some changes of their own - an attitude of ‘take something good and make it better’ prevails. The main theme of Country Landing and that ‘small town’ personalized, friendly service will remain. The office and some storage area were renovated to provide even more customer floor area and allow for an increase in product lines. Starting in mid March Country Landing will become the exclusive area dealer for Comfor-pedic Visco Elastic mattresses, Sleeplogic bedding and Protect-A-Bed pillow and mattress protectors. The decision to carry a complete Higher-End Bedding System was arrived at after considering availability of such product in the area, current demand and expected demand. Changing demographics and near-future growth forecasts for Collingwood and vicinity made the choice an easy one.
The expansion of rustic furniture choices and the Artistic Print section at Country Landing is linked directly to the demand for quality made Canadian product and the store carries several ‘home-grown’ brands including Springwater, Kaon and Northland.
