Downtown Collingwood thrives on the support of our local community.  Providing a variety of shops, services and restaurants, while largely remaining locally owned and/or managed. Creating a wonderful shopping and dining experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else, making our businesses uniquely responsive to the needs and wants of our community.

The Retail Connection
Unlike many other small town communities in Ontario, and for that matter North America, our main shopping and business area continues to develop, not giving way to big box stores or shopping malls.  Downtown Collingwood serves the community with everything from the corner store and gas bar to large chain grocery store, to the local butcher, drycleaners and flower shop; Books, clothing, sporting goods and home decor are all readily available.  With over 75 stores, the business district actually has more retail shops than many shopping malls. Why waste time and energy when everything you need is just steps away in the heart of Collingwood.

The Cultural Experience
Downtown Collingwood provides a variety of cultural experiences, with eight art spaces, from traditional galleries to working studios and teaching studios.  The library and museum are also in the center of town and the gayety theatre is home to Theatre Collingwood bringing live theatrical productions to the community.  The arena is right in the core of this community and has been the heart of the hockey community since its construction in the 1950’s.  Who says sports and art cannot live together!

Not Just about Shopping
Accountants, Lawyers, Doctors, Optometrist whatever your business or personal need, the services you need are available at many downtown businesses.  We also have hairdressers and barbers, full spa service, fitness gyms and many other healthful businesses to assist in keeping you healthy or helping take-a-way the stress of the day. Downtown Collingwood helps the community with all of its health and wellness needs.

Don’t Forget the Food
With 25 (twenty five) food and beverage establishments within a six block radius, Downtown Collingwood provides a variety of food and beverage choices to the community.  From pub fair the fine dining, coffee on a patio to rocking out in a pub.  Your taste buds will thank you for bring them to the food district of the Georgian Triangle.

If you are looking to have a coffee (or Tea), shop or become culturally advanced, Downtown Collingwood has it all.  It’s your downtown - it’s your community.
