New Businesses On The Block In Downtown Oakville

It’s no secret – the pandemic was hard on small business owners. Over two years, our beloved local retailers, fitness studios, restaurants, and cafes have cycled through closures for months at a time. With a pivot here and support from the community there, many survived. And, now that the construction project is finally over, Lakeshore Road looks fantastic, with wide pavements, beautiful planters, and numerous patios and outdoor dining areas.

The good news is that despite the obstacles posed by the pandemic, Downtown Oakville has welcomed over 40 new businesses over the last two years. Check out this list of some of Downtown’s latest restaurants, retailers, and professional service providers.
