The Windsor-West Hants Industrial Park, and the Town of Windsor Industrial Park are both conveniently located near Highway 101 entrances to the Town and provide serviced lots and mini-malls for existing and new businesses.

In 1996, the construction of Cole Drive opened up a new section in the Windsor-West Hants Industrial Park. A Tim Hortons' and McDonalds Family Restaurant were the first businesses to locate on this new street. In 2000, Windsor welcomed the Atlantic Super Store to Cole Drive.

This newest section of the Industrial Park has approximately 15 acres still available for development.

The Town's retail and hospitality sectors are growing. Sobeys expanded its retail operation by 7,500 square feet to occupy a 42,200 square-foot store at the Fort Edward Mall. The Atlantic Superstore, opened in 2000, occupies a 49,495 square-foot building. Both stores offer Metro Halifax pricing.

Lawtons Drug Store is also committed to the future of Windsor, having selected the Town as the location of the pharmacy's first "Concept 2000" store. The 7,000 square-foot store opened in late 1999.

Windsor also has a healthy downtown commercial area complete with eating establishments, entertainment and specialty stores.
