The Town of Gananoque and Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands are launching the Make a Life, Make a Living Storefront Vacancy Initiative, to help promote entrepreneurship in both municipalities. The first installments of this project can be found on the main streets of Gananoque (167 King Street East) and Lyndhurst (415 Lyndhurst Road, Lyndhurst). At these currently vacant storefronts, window decals have been installed, 3D renderings of what potential storefronts could look like have been placed on the windows, a QR code is in place to draw people to the Town of Gananoque and Township websites in order to learn more about starting a business in our region.
