The Well Being
The Well Being is located on the third floor of The Old Shoe Factory in Downtown Brampton.
The Old Shoe Factory was once the home of Hewetson Shoe Company. It was designated a historical property under the Ontario Heritage Act in 2008, and now is occupied by a varied of small businesses including The Well Being.
The lobby and hallways have retained the shoe factory theme and are decorated with pictures and artifacts of local history, and old shoe making equipment.
Laurie Di Giulio, who opened The Well Being in 2005, has a personal connection to the building. Her father owned a company that supplied materials to shoe manufacturers in Ontario. The shoe factory that was once in this building were customers of her father, and he frequented the building several times a week.
