Start Your Shopping in Collingwood Downtown

Get Ahead with great Christmas gift ideas and décor in Collingwood Downtown’s specialty shops.

Fashion—Décor—Eco-friendly. Three words that describe Downtown Collingwood shopping. With trendy clothing boutiques and shops that feature handcrafted items, Collingwood is the go-to place to find a gift for that someone special. These independent businesses are each one unique, with its own flair and style, and together create that inviting mix of modern & timeless that is the flavour of the historical Downtown, making Collingwood the ideal shopping destination this season.

Who says Christmas shopping has to be a chore? Take the day and explore Downtown Collingwood, its treasures, its history, and its wonderful array of unique stores, each one with its own personality. Why travel to the big cities when you can find something wonderful close to home? Support the local community and local businesses, discover something wonderful, and have fun shopping in Collingwood.
