You probably know by now that I love being able to shine a spotlight on the local businesses in my neighbourhood. I feel fortunate to live and work in Southern Ontario, where there are so many amazing small business owners to support.

Choosing to shop locally supports and improves our community, and it makes us feel like we can trust and have faith in our hometown! I’d rather give back to our community and support a small, local business than shop with a large corporation.

While I love highlighting local restaurants, this month I wanted to feature a different type of business – Rosa’s Tailoring and Dry Cleaners. I’ve been a customer of Rosa’s for well over a decade and have always had a wonderful experience with Rosa and her team.

What Makes Rosa’s Tailoring and Dry Cleaners Special

It can be a challenge to find a business that’s run by people who are truly dedicated, hardworking, and honest – and that’s exactly what Rosa’s Tailoring and Dry Cleaners is.

I trust them for all of my tailoring and dry cleaning needs. The staff are always friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Rosa’s prices are fair and affordable, and their work is always done professionally and in a timely manner.

Rosa’s specializes in alterations for wedding gowns, party dresses, and clothing for special occasions. They also offer a selection of consignment wedding gowns, formal gowns, and gowns and suits for children. If you need your shoes, leather, or suede goods repaired, Rosa’s has got you covered.

And Rosa’s dry cleaning service is the best around – stubborn stains are no match for Rosa’s team!

I love to see Rosa’s collaborating with other local businesses like Lilac Bridal – this kind of collaboration is what helps the small businesses in our community continue to thrive.

A quick read through the reviews for Rosa’s Tailoring and Dry Cleaners will show you just how much care Rosa and her team put into every project. Many customers write about the excellent customer service and perfect alterations they’ve received from Rosa’s over the years.

Customers often comment on how much they trust Rosa and the team with their special investment pieces, which speaks volumes. One customer even notes that Rosa saved her wedding dress just days before the wedding!

Tijana Jefic HIS

As a hearing instrument specialist, she is involved with hearing tests, hearing aid counselling, hearing aid cleaning and repairs, as well as earwax removal. Often, it can be hard to pinpoint Tijana’s role in one particular job, as she is involved in multiple aspects, but she is mainly involved with anything that is required to satisfy the patient. With customer service the number one priority, she always makes sure that each interaction she has with the patient is always positive. Everyone that enters our clinic always notes how welcome they feel, and it’s all down to the family atmosphere we have created. Due to the nature of her role, she has many patients that come to her, worried about hearing technology, unsure of whether it’s right for them. Once, she had a patient who had nothing but problems with their past hearing aids and the previous clinic they went to. Tijana approached their issues with care, which made a huge difference in the overall satisfaction they received from their hearing aids. It was hugely rewarding and made such a difference in the patient’s life. Outside of work, Tijana is very family orientated and enjoys travelling, hiking, and any other recreational activities. She also loves to watch movies, listen to music, and hang out with close friends.
