Welcome to Downtown Dundas

  Quiet tree-lined streets, historic 19th century buildings, arts, culture and recreation and over 100 shops, restaurants and services nestled in the heart of picturesque Dundas Valley

Take a stroll through Dundas and experience the unique charm and ambiance of a small historic town, from our old buildings and quaint restaurants, to a host of specialty shops and food emporiums.

Then step through our doors and be swept away by the quality and sophistication of our merchandise. Downtown clothiers offer a diverse collection of fashions for the whole family, from children’s to casual and sporting, and classic day to evening and wedding attire.
