Celebration of downtown Truro shops set for Saturday


TRURO, N.S. – Inglis Place has long been a site of local growth, interesting shops and new ventures in Truro’s downtown core.

Saturday marks the beginning of one new business on Inglis Place, and a celebration of several businesses sharing the same historic building.

Businessman Mitch Cooke is hosting a combined open house and grand opening for shop owners at 72 and 76 Inglis Place. The building is now home to HAF Skate and Tattoo, The Tweed Suit Barbershop, Jimolly’s Bakery Café and The Vault.

The event is an opening celebration for The Tweed Suit and an opportunity for the public to visit all of the shops in the building and to take part in the festivities.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will offer flash tattoos, music and a DJ. “There’s going to be all kinds of different things happening in the building,” says Cooke.

“Coldstream Clear Distillery will be offering samples of their products, and The Tweed Suit will be cutting hair.”

There will also be other local venders present, along with different sales and giveaways taking place.

The open house is also celebrating the opportunity to do business in Truro and getting the chance to meet the community members, says Cooke.

“My favorite aspect of doing business here is the people; we have a really good following and a loyal support group.”
