When it comes time for a little retail therapy, Cobourg won’t disappoint. Browsing the shops is about the experience – the quiet and historic surroundings, pedestrian walkways, unhurried pace and friendly service.
It’s also about the selection and variety, and the thrill that comes with finding a unique piece that’s locally made or handcrafted. We have several galleries and boutiques that feature the works of local artists and designers.
Also in the downtown core, alongside the shops and services, you’ll find sidewalk cafes, bakeries and tea rooms for a perfect cup. So you can shop, then relax, and then shop some more! (Ladies, bring your power-walking shoes and save the heels for evening…)
Festivals, too, shine a spotlight on the heritage King Street with its mix of services and retailers. If you’re in town for a big event, check out the sidewalk displays and food booths downtown. Victoria Hall, the civic centre, also hosts a weekly farmer’s market directly behind the building, where you’ll find the best of local produce, arts and crafts.
For national chains and other retailers, Northumberland Mall is an indoor shopping centre a short drive from downtown. There's also a cinema and a bowling alley at the mall, so make a plan for the whole family!
