CFN– Much Tease, on Cornwall’s downtown Pitt Street, is one of relatively few area small businesses that are set for expansion in the New Year. Owner Greg Mooney, who has run the store for the last twenty-two years, is confident about the future despite the slow economic climate that is affecting other Cornwall businesses. “We’ve spent the entire fall consolidating the business. We’ve brought in a lot of new merchandise, and we’re already seeing the results,” comments Greg.
The core of Much Tease is T-Shirts, and the stock of band shirts has doubled. In addition, they are now carrying shirts for such popular features as Big Bang Theory, Epic Meal Time and Sons of Anarchy. Greg is especially happy to retail Mountain brand T-Shirts, which are available in a variety of themes, such as dogs, wolves, Native themes, North American Animals, etc.
The major new feature for Much Tease, however, is their new website, MuchTease.ca, which went officially online at the beginning of the month, with about 2000 items available. This includes not only about 1500 T-Shirts and related clothing, but also a significant selection from the adult shop, situated at the back of Much Tease.
“The website is already becoming a major asset, allowing shoppers to compare our prices with the competition, not only here in Cornwall, but throughout Canada. A significant number of orders are coming from outside Ontario – a gain for the entire Cornwall economy.”
