Kawartha Local Marketplace

Kawartha Local opened a new downtown Peterborough retail location last week called Kawartha Local Marketplace.

Owner Rob Howard has developed a storefront devoted to promoting local producers and artisans, with a guarantee that everything sold in the store is made right here in Peterborough and the Kawarthas. Kawartha Local offers a retail incubator for new products, where local makers can become members of the Marketplace and receive dedicated floor space and direct access to the buying public.

Kawartha Local Marketplace is located at 165 King Street. Visit www.kawarthalocal.ca for more information.

Cosmetic Transformations recently moved into the top floor of the Medical Arts Clinic at 272 Charlotte Street.

Owner Kyla Gutsche and the Cosmetic Transformations team camouflage scars and tattoo physical features that have been lost or damaged due to trauma, surgery, illness, or the aging process. She is excited to now be located beside Peterborough’s newest board certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Klok. Dr. Klok runs a general reconstructive and cosmetic surgery practice called Kawartha Plastic Surgery, with a strong focus in breast reconstruction.

Kyla has also announced that she will be performing free medical tattoo procedures to young trauma survivors in Dr. Andrew Chan’s name, as a tribute to Dr Chan.
