Parry Sound Area Visitor Information Centre - Brochure Station
We are very pleased to share the news that the Town of Parry Sound will be continuing to provide Visitor Information Services at our Stockey Centre & Bobby Orr Hall of Fame location on Bay Street.
The Stockey Centre offers FREE membership for all local West Parry Sound Area Businesses for display of business related brochures, pamphlets, booklets, magazines, and flyers.
The Stockey Centre staff will welcome visitors to the lobby area where information will be available for participating local businesses. Our goal will be to increase our staff knowledge on what our area has to offer and provide a comfortable spot for visitors to drop in to pick up brochures, use facilities, and get a bit of information.
Materials can be dropped off or mailed to:
Charles W. Stockey Centre
2 Bay Street
Parry Sound, Ontario
We are excited to be able to provide these services that will help to link visitors to our businesses. It is important to also clarify what we are not able to provide and is not part of our services:
- Destination marketing services. We will not be providing DMO services and will not be actually promoting any specific business or booking any services on behalf of local business
- Telephone information. We will be operating as a visitor information location, complete with directional signage that will bring visitors off the highway and through town right to the waterfront. We support the position that customers calling for information, should be contacting the businesses directly. Our phone number will not be published for Visitor Information.
- Website Services. The Town of Parry Sound website currently offers a ‘Visit Us’ section. The Stockey Centre and Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Websites will continue to focus on their own lines of business.
