GRAVENHURST — “At last!”

With one swing, Mayor Paisley Donaldson opened the Shipyard with owners Tim Webb and Dave Campbell holding the symbolic ribbon rope.

A decade after opening, the Muskoka Wharf’s first building is open for business.

And Mayor Paisley Donaldson couldn’t be happier Tuesday as she cut the ribbon to open The Shipyards Muskoka Marketplace.

As new owners Tim Webb and Dave Campbell held a symbolic rope, Donaldson swung a mighty hatchet — and in one fell swoop chopped it in half to make it official.

Webb and Campbell also own the Gypsy Mews on the main street.

With District Chair John Klinck and councillors Sandy Cairns, Paul Kennedy, Jeff Watson and a handful of supporters and merchants applauding, the gift and clothing shop is open for business.

Shipworks combines the best of Muskoka’s steamboat history with cottage country crafts.

Donaldson said Campbell and Webb have bridged a partnership with some main street merchants who will have display space in the large building among a dozen or more retailers, along with some guest pop-up businesses dropping in over the summer for quick hits on the two floors.

Drop by for their official opening and see what all the excitement is about.

Friends, supporters and few of vendors join Webb and Campbell on their first official day Tuesday.
