Almonte is no different than any other town in that the downtown area is at a crossroads. Urban sprawl is starting to take hold, and big box stores are moving in. For many small merchants this is a difficult time.

However, efforts are being put in place to revitalize downtown Almonte. This can be done in a variety of ways, but what seems to be happening here is that small, unique shops are opening up, offering up items that you won’t find at your big box retailer.

As well, Almonte hosts a variety of festivals and special events throughout the year in its downtown core. Efforts are also being made to beautify this area with flowers, and the Riverwalk is simply amazing!

It is going to take time, but we think that downtown Almonte has the potential to have a bright future. If you have visited recently, please take the time to complete our visitor survey. Your input is taken seriously and we welcome your feedback!
