Hunt & Dagger

Located in downtown Whitby, Hunt & Dagger is more than just a barbershop — it’s an experience. Enjoy a game of billiards while waiting for your haircut, facial treatment or old-school straight-razor shave, or hit it up in the early evening for their “Beards and Beers” events with live music. You can even shop online for their exclusive collection of hair and beard products, grooming accessories, cool jewellery and more.

The Durham Distillery

Don’t let this former firehouse fool you. It’s Durham Region’s first-ever distillery for small-batch, handcrafted gin, whisky and vodka in Ajax. Their signature grain-to-glass vodka uses only Ontario organic wheat and is triple distilled to deliver a unique taste that’s great on its own or in your favourite cocktail. The Durham Distillery’s finest can be delivered, purchased at their on-site retail store or enjoyed at many restaurants throughout Durham Region.

25 Mill St., Ajax

Little West Indies

The first West Indian store in Clarington, Little West Indies, has it all: from fresh and high-quality West Indian foods, including ackee and chef-prepared, ready-to-eat meals like curry goat, jerk pork and saltfish rundown, to Black-owned, locally sourced beauty products and accessories sold in its sister shop, Beauty by LWI.
