Merchant Feature: The Back Shop

The Back Shop opened it’s location at 78 Ottawa St. N in 1985. Diane, one of the owners, recalls being drawn to Ottawa St. due to the well-known name of Ottawa St. being a part of the up and coming neighbourhood of Crown Point and the high traffic exposure of the street. Getting into the business due to the rise in age of the baby boomers and seeing that a need for home healthcare would be increasing, the owners felt that it was a secure business to get into.

The Back Shop is a home healthcare equipment provider, specializing in the motor vehicle accident sector. However, they do carry a variety of aids and system devices for the ageing population to use in their homes. Mainly dealing with occupational therapists, The Back Shop finds that most of the customers discover the store upon their need for home healthcare aids. Should you be in need of the aids or system devices, stop by their store and enjoy their great customer service!
