Cornwall Ontario – The Above and Beyond award recognizes exemplary service in the community. Generally speaking, it is awarded to a firm or individual who goes above what would generally be expected.

The Chamber of Commerce recognized the efforts of Chris Munro at the recent Business Excellence Awards gala. Specifically, Ms. Munro is seen as a community leader who is making a difference in promoting the various merchants of Downtown Cornwall.

“I believe in Cornwall,” said Ms. Munro, who is the proprietor of Life’s Little Pleasures, a Pitt Street shop that offers an eclectic selection of jewellery, clothing and home decor items. “I think helping neighbours succeed simply makes good business sense, for if everybody does the same, the end result can be amazing.”

In addition to operating her own store, Ms. Munro has been active promoting downtown as a shopping and dining destination, working with other downtown business owners in organizing a number of successful events.

“Thanks to her never-ending optimism and faith in our Downtown, Chris has helped enhance Cornwall’s image both locally and abroad.” said Allison St. Louis, Chair of the Downtown Cornwall Business Improvement Area.

Ms. Munro has also been active in attracting new merchants to the area, often working behind the scenes.

“Our Downtown has certainly stepped up its game and I enjoy collaborating with innovative small business owners who also strive to bring the very best in product and customer service,” said Ms. Munro. “Wrangling new businesses to our core to ensure a stronger, healthier and more vibrant area is something I am very passionate about. I’ve always believed in our downtown and as it grows, it makes it easy to recommend and promote our area to tourists and potential future residents.”
