Downtown Napanee continues to be a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity. The core is home to every type of business a downtown needs to be successful. Shopping, dining, personal and professional services are all readily available, and with every transaction comes amazing customer service provided by hard-working business owners and their dedicated staff.
While you’re likely familiar with some of the long-standing stalwarts like Starlet, April’s Image, Divine, Ellena’s and the Loaf N Ale (to name a VERY few), you may not have heard about some of the new and exciting business openings that have occurred in the last few months. Many of these new ventures are located off Dundas Street, broadening both the size and variety of offerings found in the downtown core.
These new businesses each offer something uniquely different, but all complement each other well to create a wonderful cluster of shops that are well worth exploring.
