Thomas the Tank Engine visited St Thomas July 18th, 19th and July 24 – 26, 2015. The event was very successful, CHCH News did a piece on the event (click link below to view).
In 2013, the city decided it was time to increase tourism services that would be available year-round. This sparked the creation of Railway City Tourism, St. Thomas’s own service organization dedicated solely to providing information, creating and marketing local events, and working with tour groups to engage visitors and keeping people informed of opportunities in the community.
The organization was built from the ground up, lead by the efforts of tourism coordinator Megan Pickersgill. Pickersgill is a St. Thomas native with a museum and economic devel-opment background who returned home from working in Nova Scotia to take on this position. Pickersgill describes the service as “your portal to discover what to see and do in St. Thom-as”. This includes the goings on of our downtown businesses. If you have a special event, sale, or promotion of some sort coming up, Railway City Tourism is happy to assist with marketing that occasion free of charge. Everyone is welcome to contact, be it in person at their office or next time you see their tent out in the city, by calling, emailing, or on one of their many social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter).
Sherry Chambers has participated in a rather diverse background of occupations. From a fourteen-year period of driving tractor trailers, owning a business at the Flying M Truck Stop, to opening her own restaurant on Talbot Street for a time, it has all led to owning and operating Sherry’s Gifts located at 567 Talbot St for the past eleven years. The business opportunity has allowed Chambers to combine her love of talking to people with a strong interest in women’s fashion and accessories. “My goal has always been to run a shop that I could afford to buy from”, she adds while also staying true to her mission statement to provide shopping for the unique woman.
Sherry’s Gifts offers clothing from Fashions by Red Coral and introducing Kim and Co. Fashions that range from sizes S through XXXL. Hats, purses, Jaqueline Kent jewelry, scarves, and gift items are also on display inside. For further information, you can check out her Facebook Page, titled “Sherry’s Fashions and Accessories”, or visit the store in person Monday through Friday between 10:00am and 5:30pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm when she’d be happy to assist you. Once you’re engaged in conversation with her, you’ll be quick to see her zest for the downtown also shine through.
