It was nearly three years ago when hair stylist-entrepreneur Robert Amado first opened Amado Salon, and he’s never looked back since. Through a customer-first philosophy and the skilled hands of innovative stylists, Amado Salon has blossomed into one of Kleinburg’s mane attractions.
“If it is one thing that we have learned in the last three years it is that if you take care of the people, the business takes care of itself,” says Robert Amado, owner and creative director of Amado Salon. “There are so many factors in running a business, but at the end of the day, it’s the people that matter most.”

Here comes the bride, all dressed in a predicable gown worn by others before her: a fashion no-no committed on the most important day of her life. Luckily, these cookie-cutter bridal looks play second fiddle at Studio Sposa.
Bringing some of the world’s best designers home, the warmly romantic boutique offers rare collections for a unique and beautiful approach to modern elegance and traditional affection in bridal wear.

Dolcini by Joseph
In the quaint town of Kleinburg there is a shop of magical delights and fantastic imagination. Filling an historic village with wondrous smells of moist cakes, gooey glazes and mouth-watering treats, Dolcini by Joseph creates decadent desserts with a world-class taste.
As his second bakery, Dolcini by Joseph is the manifestation of Joseph Montinaro’s desire to produce artistically beautiful and progressive pastry. After taking over his father’s business, West Finch Bakery, he soon became bored with traditional recipes. He journeyed to Europe to explore other baking possibilities. Treated to a whole other world of pastry delights, Montinaro experienced an “explosion of ideas.” This new-found inspiration was a key factor in opening Dolcini by Joseph. Read more
Holiday bells ring as the door to a local shop closes behind you. Out of the cold and into the warmth of a festive storefront, you’re greeted with a pleasant smile. A shop owner guides you around, giving personal attention and expert knowledge on exclusive products rarely seen in big-box stores. Making suggestions as she walks with you, she picks an item, showing you the fine details and superb craftsmanship that make it so special. Once you’ve decided on your purchase, the shop owner personally wishes you the best during the Holidays as she gift-wraps your purchase. In a modern world where time is a constant factor, we lean towards the routes that save the most time and ignore the community around us for the quickest answer. But consider this: If we only decide to window-shop, vacant storefronts with “For Lease” signs hanging in windows will be all that’s left where a local business once stood. Read more
