Good News Story – Grand Re-Opening’s!

I wanted to bring your attention to a few exciting Grand Re-Openings that have happened in recent weeks!  Orangeville Tailoring re-opened as Orangeville Formal Wear & Tailors and Son of a Chef Bakery re-opened under new ownership!   You can expect the same great service from both of these businesses, with exciting new products & offerings!  Be sure to give them a wave when you pass by their windows and give them a “like” or send them a message on Facebook or Instagram to show your support!

Way to go & wishing much success to both of you!
