Jim and Amy Walker own Walkerworks Framing on Beverly Street at Stittsville Main. Walkerworks started as a home-based business on Fernbank Road, then a retail shop in Perth, before winding up in Stittsville.
Their current spot is actually their second location since moving to Stittsville. They used to be next to the Legion across the street. Not only do the Walkers own the shop, they also live right next door with their young family.
It’s back to the drawing board, but not quite to square one, for the Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan (CDP).

James says: “Excellent excuse to leave the cars at home and walk in the Village. So the plan now is they have coffee – good coffee – and tea and a few others beverages. Eventually artisanal snacks and then salads lunches etc. It’s on its feet now and will progressively get moving! Good music too – and for me, that’s key to wanting to visit . They’re using Pilot Coffee from Toronto – said they’ve known the roastery for years, loved the coffee and Pilot has helped guide them with Quitters equipment. ”
So great to see @kittythefool get her great new Quitters Coffee open today. She and Rick will rule this venture. Stittsville will love it.
Stittsville seems to be a bit obsessed with Quitters Coffee, the new cafe that Kathleen Edwards is opening on Main Street later this month.
We posted two articles about Quitters on our web site last week which became the top two most-read stories of the week. We think that any excitement about new businesses on Stittsville Main is a good thing, so we’re happy to fuel the obsession in any way that we can.
Earlier today graphic designer Steve St. Pierre posted this on Twitter:
Demolition of the old Bradley’s General Store building at 1518 Stittsville Main Street started at 7am today. By 10am it was a pile of bricks. A fire destroyed the building in September 2013. Although it had heritage designation, the building was deemed to be structurally unsound.
No word yet on what will replace the building, or when.
