I believe there is a different vibe to people on the streets in the downtown. That stride of purpose. Working people with little time to spare carry an energy with them you don’t find in a mall on the outskirts of the downtown core. We ride that wave downtown! Love it!

Having been located in downtown Timmins for over 60 years, we couldn’t think of a better place to have a business. The assortment and close proximity to necessities such as financial and other professional services and a good selection of eating establishments is only one of the reasons for being in the Business Improvement Area.
