Around the Sound the Second Time Around

Around the Sound in Owen Sound
A couple weeks ago we went to Around the Sound, in Owen Sound. We went back again this week. Looks completely different, doesn't it? That's because they have moved.

The new address is 685 6th Street East, at the corner of 7th Avenue. This is a more convenient location to drive to, since it avoids the downtown bridges (and especially now that the main bridge is out of commission for a year to be rebuilt.)

The new space is not as pretty as the old one, but it is a great deal lighter and more convenient. All their old products are there, as well as new ones and space to expand to even more.

My photos make the store look very empty, but in fact we arrived during a lull and 5 minutes later the place was packed.

As before, lots of local preserves and honeys.

This space behind the main shop area is storage at the moment, but there are big plans for it. At some point it will become a community kitchen that can be rented for catering, bulk cooking or product development, as well as being used for cooking classes.

Gosh I am from that area and didn't even know about this place. Mind you, I am just moving into the whole foods and healthier eating thing so that is likely why. Will have to check it out!

Well now you know! They've only been around for about a year, so this qualifies as somewhat rapid expansion. Definitely well worth checking them out. (Congratulations, by the way!)
