There is no doubt it has been a long 15 months for the shops and restaurants on Main Street Unionville.
The Covid-19 pandemic closures certainly took their toll in terms of revenue and morale, but these small businesses are not giving up – and are more excited than ever for an amazing summer ahead.
Now that the province has launched its three-step roadmap to reopening, businesses will be able to welcome more and more customers, and the street will once again thrive. Visitors coming for an ice cream, coffee and a walk have already been filling the street this spring, and now guests will be welcomed on to patios for delicious fare and cold drinks.
“Although many of our businesses were successful with pivoting to curbside pickup, take out and delivery, there is nothing quite like that one-to-one shopping and dining experience that Main Street Unionville offers,” says Sara Sterling, Executive Director of the Unionville BIA.
“We are also thrilled to be hosting a new Main Street Unionville Market each Sunday at the Stiver Mill, with lots of fresh foods and artisanal items.”
And if the existing merchants and new Market weren’t enough of a draw, take note that Main Street will be welcoming four new businesses to the street this summer, all with delicious new offerings for you to savour. The province gave the greenlight for non-essential businesses to open June 11.
