    Our new Stayner Chamber of Commerce Facebook page is up and running and we need to have lots of people "Like " our page. Why?
    When our local merchants and service providers are offering something special, you'll be the first to know!
    Our page will pass on all kinds of information about what's going on in Stayner and Clearview. And we want to encourage you to shop close to home.
    It generates activity in the local economy, creates more jobs close to home and keeps our businesses growing.

    If you’ve ever caught yourself saying “I don’t want to walk all the 
    way to the other end of town”, you’ll enjoy this not quite useless 
    fact. The entire length of Stayner’s commercial core area (from 
    Reinhart Foods’ building to the Town & Country store) is the same 
    walking distance as going from one end to the other in the commercial 
    space and parking lots at Barrie’s largest shopping centre, Georgian 
    Mall. The difference, of course, is that when you’re shopping right in 
    your own backyard the benefits are accrued in the community where you 
    live. And while the ceiling in the mall never changes, our open-air 
    concept is ever-changing! Shop Stayner!

    We know that our Main Street is a heavily traveled one and if you’re 
    having trouble competing for a place to park we want to remind you 
    that there are a large number of parking spots just off the beaten 
    path. With back alley access at several points along the Main Street, 
    the parking areas on Gideon/William and Brock streets can also be very 
    convenient.

    The municipal lane and public pathway running north of the lights at 
    Perry and Main take you to parking spots at Centennial Park on Brock 
    Street. Cut through the alleyway beside Greenview Graphics and you can 
    walk south to the parking at the Clearview Administration Centre and the 
    parking lot at Huron and Gideon Streets.On the south side of Station Park, 
    across the street from the Stayner Library there is also a convenient parking lot. 
    At Brock and Main Streets, alongside Coffee Culture there are also more spots.
    No meters to feed. Free parking is just steps away.

    The next time you see Manfred Leimgardt in town, say a word of thanks 
    for his efforts in tending our floral baskets and planters along Main 
    Street. While other communities have greenhouses and municipal 
    staffing to look after Main Street floral displays, ours is 
    spearheaded and funded entirely by the Stayner Chamber of Commerce. 
    Without the benefit of a greenhouse, Manfred consults with some of the 
    pros to come up with a planting scheme and sets out the baskets which 
    essentially mature in place. With careful watering and aggressive 
    fertilizing the flowers usually can be counted on to hit their stride 
    by mid to late summer. Then we’re at the mercy of the frosts just as 
    the displays are at their showiest point. For those who get downtown 
    early enough, you’re likely to see Manfred’s orange lawn tractor 
    crawling down the sidewalk as he carries out the daily watering. The 
    Chamber is grateful for Manfred’s willingness to serve his community.
