Stepping Out, a women’s fashion boutique has opened a new location in Essex.

Located at 21 Talbot Street North, they moved just down the street from there previous located at 9 Talbot Street North.

“Loyal customers are key for a business and Essex has always been a supportive base of friendly customers,” said Ann Pittao, owner. “Shopping local is important to my Essex customers and being close to Windsor attracts an even broader customer base.”

Before moving, Pittao undertook a dramatic interior and exterior renovation at the new location. For exterior improvements, she also took advantage of the Town’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP), which provides grant funding to eligible property owners to enhance and improve their properties.

“With such a big transformation, the CIP helped enormously,” Pittao added. “I was able to add a few extras outside which help to make it more appealing for our downtown.”

“Ann and Stepping Out are a great example of an existing business utilizing the Town’s grant program to expand and help beautify our urban cores,” said Nelson Silveira, Town of Essex Economic Development Officer. “The Town continues to provide grants and other incentives to attract new business and encourage current businesses to expand, and we look forward to more investment as this area grows.”
