Shift Network Tours Thunder Bay Businesses

THUNDER BAY – Business – The Shift Network, Thunder Bay’s young professionals were prowling the streets of the Fort William Business District tonight. 

The ‘Shifters’ were on a tour of the businesses, got the chance to stop in at many of the local shops and see the excitement that local businesses in the downtown south are starting to build. “We have a Neighbourhood to Build” is the theme a growing number of business owners, and property owners are rallying behind.

At the Unveiled Bridal Boutique, owner and entrepreneur Shelby Ch’ng shared her experience in opening a new business, and how her dream has come together in the Fort William Business District.
