5 Benefits of Owning a Downtown Brockville Business

Currently, Downtown Brockville is home to more than 300 thriving businesses; from cozy cafes, to high end retailers, and everything in between. Owning a Brockville business in the downtown area provides business owners with several benefits.

  1. Be Part of Something Beautiful

    Downtown Brockville has many of the oldest, most beautiful shop fronts, and views of some of the designated Cultural Heritage Sites. Doing business in the downtown area allows businesses to be part of the rich history of the area, while taking advantage of both street and foot traffic. The beauty of the area is hard to ignore and will naturally flow into your store front or office area.

  2. A Cohesive Downtown Organization

    Part of the charm of a Downtown Brockville business is participating in local area events, such as beautification projects, Sidewalk Sales, and seasonal festivities. Business owners work together to create mutually beneficial projects, which effectively boosts the whole town’s sense of pride.

  3. A Community to be Proud of

    Brockville, though a popular travel destination thanks to the St. Lawrence River, still nurtures the local community. Organizations, such as our own Brockville Police, regularly hold events and community days designed to bring people together to celebrate things and learn something new. Owning a Brockville business opens more opportunities to get involved and make a difference in the local community.

  4. Opportunities for Growth

    Owning a small business in Downtown Brockville, provides owners with easy access to invaluable resources. You will enjoy the benefits of membership with Leeds Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre and the Thousand Island Community Development Corporation. These resources will provide you with the tools and information you need to grow your business and thrive with the rest of Downtown Brockville.

  5. A Share of Brockville's Flourishing Tourism Dollars

    Located on the St. Lawrence River, Brockville is a popular tourist destination. People from all over the world come to enjoy the sights, sounds, and history of the Thousand Island region, the Aquatarium, and the Brockville Arts Centre Heritage Theatre, just to name a few. As part of the wonderful community of Brockville businesses, you will benefit greatly from the tourism dollars that our historic Downtown area brings in each year.
