New Collingwood Business: The Wild Stand General Store
Have you had a chance to check out The Wild Stand General Store? It is located in a purpose built Quonset hut just south of the bowling alley on Hurontario Street in Collingwood and I finally had a chance to drop by.
According to the website, “The Wild Stand is where the General Store and the Convenience Store meet with a modern, healthy twist. As local as possible, environment-conscious, and most of all – great tasting! We’re taking the best from the country general store and the neighborhood convenience store or “dépanneur”, and bringing back the original purpose of these small-scale, neighborhood establishments. Everything you need but not everything under the sun.”
Here’s a quick two minute interview I did with a very keen employee and resident Chef that explains much more.
The prices were excellent, the environment clean and the staff cheerful. On the way out, I enjoyed a terrific latte to go and the lunch line up was 7 deep. Check it out, Monday through Thursday – 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
