Escape the Old Post

Third Floor (Former Attic)

On the 3rd floor, the building’s original attic has been transformed for Escape the Old Post – one of the world’s most unique puzzle rooms. Teams attempt to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategies to complete the objective: beat the clock and ring the original 1912 bronze bell housed on the roof of the building. Learn more about this unique experience and book your escape here.

Hair Therapy + Polished

Main Floor

Owned and operated by Caitlin King, Hair Therapy was established in Harriston in 2013. Located on the main floor of The Old Post, Hair Therapy is a destination for contemporary women’s, men’s and children’s hair cuts, colour services and styling. Hair Therapy is also home to Polished esthetic services, owned and operated by Maggie McLaughlin. Occupying the space which was the hub of Harriston’s community postal services, this first floor space lives on as a hub of great conversation and style. The space is uniquely beautiful, and – fittingly – has been given a makeover to highlight its best features: an abundance of natural light through the building’s magnificent original windows, sky high ceilings, restored hardwood floors, and interior brick walls. Come and experience this self care retreat for yourself!
