A big congratulations to Turney’s Truck and Auto Centre on winning the CARS Magazine 2023 Shop of the Year Award. Turney’s has been working on vehicles in Peterborough for nearly 100 years. They were chosen for the award for their dedication to fostering a successful shop by encouraging training, allowing for a flexible work schedule, longevity in the community, and maintaining loyalty among its patrons.
Lett Architects is rebranding and expanding. Going forward, the company will be called Unity Design Studio and will have additional offices in Kitchener and Collingwood. The practice has been around for 55 years and the rebrand to Unity is seen as a reflection of their shared values and their work. Their local projects include the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre and the upcoming Canadian Canoe Museum. It’s encouraging to see a thriving local business that has left a lasting positive impact on our community continue to grow with more projects throughout the province.
