The tally of a two-year Perth Business Improvement Area survey found the Town of Perth has taken on between 25 and 30 new businesses, according to Councillor Judy Brown at a council meeting on Oct. 24. The reasons for this are many: newcomers liked the way the town looked, they liked the Heritage aspect of Perth, and they liked the way businesses helped each other. They also liked the friendly people, and the connection between the BIA and town staff.

Businesses totally new to the downtown include:

  • Escape Room,
  • Heads and Tails,
  • Old Vape Shop,
  • Wishberry,
  • Cottage Country Emporium,
  • Decor a la Mode,
  • Studio 87,
  • Fashion Envy,
  • Rocky River Cafe,
  • Curly Red Head,
  • Fall River & Co.,
  • Likkuid Sole,
  • Treasure Lane,
  • Hay Design,
  • Salon Meraki,
  • Red Brick Emporium,
  • Century 21,
  • Heritage Bikes,
  • Perth Pie Co.,
  • Field House,
  • East Meets West,
  • Twisted Fork,
  • iRate Customer Service, and
  • Father and Son Barber Shop.

Seven other businesses either changed owners or location within the downtown:

  • Unravelled,
  • MacEwen Gas,
  • Coutts,
  • Perth Picture Framing,
  • Ground Waves,
  • Yoga Connection, and
  • Computer Plus.
