It’s always a pleasure to welcome a new member of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce and this week we’re delighted to “formally” welcome FIVE businesses to our growing family.

We encourage you to reach out to the following:

Blackwell Cycle: James Grant and John Elliott are co-owners of this business, located at the intersection of Blackwell Sideroad and Blackwell Road, once a station stop on the Grand Trunk Railway. The rail line has been replaced with a multi-use pathway, and a few metres from this historic right-of-way can be found Blackwell Cycle. Focused on offering quality products along with knowledgeable and objective sales advice and guidance, Blackwell Cycle, and its associated business, Wawanosh Watercraft, are the antithesis of the big box, chain store buying experience. With a history going back to 1992, the business has earned a reputation as one of the area’s premier cycling and outdoor retailers. Visit them in person or online at www.blackwellcycle.com. (519) 491-1777.

Gina Marie Photography: Owner Gina Marie Robertson worked for nearly three decades as a nurse. Now with her photography business, which can be found online at ginamariephotography.ca, Gina Marie talks about the “one BIG lesson” that nursing has taught her: “Life is precious. Life is short. Live it; love it; embrace it. If there’s something that isn’t quite working, change it. Last but not least, DOCUMENT IT! Take more pictures of your loved ones. Take more pictures of your adventures, your milestones, or whatever it is that reaches your soul. This is your legacy. Pass it on!” Gina Marie can also be reached at (519) 542-6138.

O’tools Cart & Parts: Donald Brooks is the owner of this business, now in its 13th year. Located in Forest, O’tools is a certified Club Car dealer, specializing in new, used and custom golf carts and golf cart parts. With a summer staff of 10, the busy location on Highway 21 sells, repairs and rents golf carts for non-golf recreational and commercial uses to both the local market and distant customers. The business can be located online at www.otools.ca. Their phone number is (519) 786-5902.

 

BeeFound Business Optimization Inc.: Sean Iovacchini owns BeeFound, which is based in Sarnia. The business is described online (at www.beefound.ca) as a cutting-edge interactive media and imaging company that captures and creates only the best aerial images and video for any project. Sean can be reached at (519) 704-0214.

Ubreakifix-Sarnia: Luke Faria is a franchise owner of Ubreakifix and plans to open in Sarnia this coming May. UBreakiFix fixes electronic devices (it’s in their name after all). From the classic phone drop in the parking lot to the tablet in the toilet, they’ve seen it all. They understand how traumatic it is when you break your favourite device and wants you to feel better the moment you walk in. The corporate website is www.ubreakifix.com and Luke can be reached at (647) 898-8178.
