After two long years of a pandemic, the shop and restaurant owners on Main Street Unionville are eager to welcome locals back to Main Street to shop and eat locally.
Offering new and unique products, they hope to attract everyone back to support their small businesses.
“We have really appreciated the support and love from the locals in Unionville and Markham throughout the pandemic,” Natasha Usher of Old Firehall Confectionery said. “They continue to surprise us with their loyalty, and look forward to bringing them new and tasty treats this spring.”
There are several great new shops that have opened on the street in the last two years that the BIA encourages residents to check out, including cafes and sweet shops like Sweetie Pie, Presotea, Espresso 21 and Boreal Gateau.
New cosmetic shop JW Cosmetics is offering unique self-care products, Gratie Medical Spa is offering top-notch spa services and Stabbyzz and Duskwood Ink both feature special tattoos for those looking for something new and different.
Other new services include the Colour Inc. Hair Lounge and Chez Co., a real estate and design firm.
“We are thrilled to welcome so many new businesses to the street, and support them as we move into the spring and summer seasons,” said Sara Sterling, Executive Director of the Unionville BIA. “It takes courage and a keen business sense to open during these times, and they are all doing well and finding the community has really embraced their new ventures.”
The Unionville BIA also hopes to bring back the Festival this year on Saturday, June 4th.
“We are forging ahead with our planning for a community and small business-focused Festival this year,” Sterling added. “As long as the city permits it within COVID restrictions, the Festival will be on.”
