The Running Room is proudly a family owned company, which originated in 1984 out of founder John Stanton's wish to purchase quality running shoes from someone knowledgeable about the sport.

Persnickety patrons can browse the full spectrum of locally sourced and certified organic fair-trade yarns and fleeces at Spun's friendly fibre emporium. A skein of bulky 100% kettle-dyed merino by Malabrigo could inspire a yarn neophyte to attempt a cozy cowl from one of Spun's many pattern books, while an old hand at the spinning wheel might stop by to pick up a package of environmentally-friendly, fair-trade Indian plant dyes to paint a batch of bland wool turkey red, forest green, or Muppet orange. Spun FibreArts will stay open on Mondays from noon to 5 p.m. through the month of December to handle the holiday rush. Spun also peddles their own feminine-cut t-shirts, allowing fibre loyalists to wear their hearts on their sleeves even as they crochet it a cardio cozy.

One of Ontario's largest brew on premises facilities, Better Bitters gives intoxicant enthusiasts the chance to craft their own libations with a fun, easy process that creates drinks worthy of picky palates at a lower cost than can be found in-store. Today's Groupon equips purchasers with their choice of the strawberry margarita or mojito wine cocktail kit, both of which produce 23 litres of devilish drinkables. The easy two-step process only requires the customer to come into the store for a 5–10 minute mixing session. After five weeks of marinating in a lucky bucket, the elixir is ready for in-store bottling, labelling, and a cotillion ball debut (the price of bottles is not included in this deal–customers can bring their own or purchase them on-site for $10 per dozen). Either convivial consumable is tasty frozen or mixed and makes a great holiday gift or New Year's Eve cocktail. For more information on Twisted Mist products, visit the info page.
