• #MBWShoutOuts – Week 2 •

In response to the challenging times that we’re all experiencing together regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to spread love and levity across the community. We brainstormed various ways we could do this and one of the things we landed on was highlighting some of the incredible local businesses who are stepping up and modifying their services to continue to serve the community through these tough times. These are local businesses who have local champions who are doing what they can to be leaders through this unprecedented historic time.

Featured This Week:

That Little Place by the Lights, Huntsville

This Bear Wear Shout Out takes us up to Huntsville to a wonderful, family-owned restaurant called The Little Place By The Lights. They specialize in home-cooked Italian pasta, lasagna, gnocchi, homemade gelato, and pizza!

Through these tough times, they have introduced a delivery service and have been bringing their delicious, home-cooked food right to people’s homes.

Listen to a comment from one of their patrons: “My house smells amazing. There is a lasagna in the oven. Thanks TLPBTL for delivering. A much need break and the highlight of my day.”

Amazing to hear that a local business is adapting to these tough times and still finding ways to be the highlight of someone’s day. Incredible. Way to go guys!! Keep spreading love and great food!!

Home Building Centre, Gravenhurst

Back at the Gateway to Muskoka we go for a shout out to another amazing local business… the Home Building Centre in Gravenhurst.

Located on HWY 169 just past the Muskoka Wharf and out towards Bala, the Home Building Centre has been stepping up to modify their services in order to continue offering their products and services and keep as many members of their team working as possible. Most recently, they too have introduced curbside pickup and are offering local delivery for purchases made on-line on their website, through e-mail or over the phone.

They’ve also been big supporters and participants in the fun weekly window challenges from Muskoka Neighbourhood Window Watch; which perfectly captures their willingness to be silly and spread love during these tough times. Well, today we tip our hat to their incredible team and wish them all the best! Way to go Home Building Centre!

Vita Fitness, Bracebridge
Website: www.myvitafitness.ca

Today’s Shout Out brings us back to the Heart of Muskoka, right here in downtown Bracebridge as we give a special shout out to Vita Fitness.

Located at 7 Manitoba Street in downtown, Vita Fitness is led by Head Trainer Morgan Rammo. Morgan offers her wealth of experience as a trainer and has already worked with hundreds of people eager to reach their fitness goals.

Through the challenges presented by COVID-19, Morgan and her incredible team at VIta Fitness have been working hard to offer virtual fitness programming through Facebook LIVE with a program they’ve called VITA FIT TV. Each day focuses on a different routine or part of the body and allows people to keep active through all of this isolation time at home.

We want to acknowledge the amazing work that Morgan and her team has done – and continues to do – and hope you’ll check out their Facebook Page or website if you’re looking to keep fit at home!

If you know a local business who deserves a shout out, send us a direct message with a photo and why they should be featured.
