Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business? 

We wanted to stay central to not only all of the Red Deer but also the surrounding communities. We know that many travel to visit us, so having such a large variety of businesses around us is a benefit to our travelling customers – it’s a one-stop-shop type of a deal!  

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant? 

The many community events and the proud members of the Downtown Business Association. There is so much to take in Downtown year-round, it would be a shame to miss it. 

I love Downtown Red Deer because… 

It is the heart of our beautiful city. Downtown has the perfect number of shops and services, you would be hard-pressed to not find what you are looking for! We especially love Ross Street for the many music and arts festivals that take place down there!
