With Valentine’s Day approaching this weekend, Nicole and I decided to hit the Waterloo Region and visit a few of our favourite independent businesses to drop off homemade Valentine cards. Appropriately, we carry an eyewear line called Anne & Valentin so we decided to fit everyone with these frames and wish them a happy “Anne & Valentin Day.”
King Street is now closed from Union to Erb and we would like to encourage everyone to continue supporting the independent shops in Uptown Waterloo. These shops do not have corporate dollars supporting them throughout this challenging time with construction, but they do have all of us. There are also a variety of new businesses opening up Downtown Kitchener so be sure to try them out. Park a little further away and walk to some of these awesome cafes, restaurants, salons and boutiques – it’s totally worth it!
