ON THE COVER — “Cheers To Small Businesses!” — 18
More than 28,000 small businesses provide employment for as many as 100,000 people in Windsor Essex. And many of those small local businesses are flourishing like a green bay tree (or vineyard in this case!). Take, for example, North 42 Degrees Estate Winery, which has completed a major expansion to add a full-service restaurant and an expanded tasting room to their property on County Road 50 East in Colchester. From wineries like North 42 to breweries, clothing stores to gift shops and more, small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. Let’s get to know a few of them a little better now in honour of “Small Business Month” in Canada.
