Why Invest in Essex Centre?
Essex Centre is a short 20 minute drive from everywhere in Essex County.
The residents of Essex are extremely loyal to their town and support the local businesses.
Known as the “Hub of the County”, Essex is uniquely positioned to give you access to the maximum number of travelers in the county. People commuting between Windsor and Kingsville or Leamington have to drive past your door. Anyone from Amherstburg travelling to and from Belle River or St. Clair Beach will be passing through our town.
Essex County is home to a population of around 400,000 people. We have an International Airport as well as Shipping Ports and Rail. We have access to markets in Michigan which gives us over 1,000,000 potential customers within one hours driving time. We are fortunate to have a forward thinking Council in Essex which is PRO business. Our Council has held the line on tax increases and is actively involved with our BIA to help fund projects designed to increase opportunity.
While housing prices in other areas of Ontario have steadily increased, Essex County remains an affordable place to work and live and raise a family. We have brand new grade schools in our town representing the Public and Catholic School systems. Our High School is being rebuilt this year and will be a state of the art institution. We have a new double pad arena with one of the best teams in the Junior “C” division playing here. Our aquatic center offers recreational as well as instructional fare.
A vibrant downtown core offers many opportunities for growth for small to medium size retail outlets. Square footage costs are very affordable as are outright purchase prices. There are many events throughout the year held in our downtown core which bring excellent exposure to our businesses there.
There is a full array of business opportunities in our community. We have storefronts for Lease or Rent as well as commercial buildings for sale. We also have vacant land available from ¼ acre to many acres.
