Well, Alderwood Plaza has been pretty quiet. I am sure that starting next Thursday when they open, they will bring a traffic boost to that plaza. Farm Boy is not exactly the cheapest, but that's how it is supposed to be. The company has a " buy less, shop more " idea, meaning it is a bit different than your average supermarket. Also, this is the first supermarket for South Etobicoke since TOPS closed in 2015. I will post here on March 3rd some pictures from the Grand Opening.I’ve shopped at Farm Boy in Ottawa often. I find them expensive. It’s a different concept from the traditional Loblaws/Metro approach. It will be interesting to see how they do in the Toronto market. Some locations” demographics make sense to me, some I question.
I look forward to the photos, since it may be some time before I get out that way. Thanks.[...] I will post here on March 3rd some pictures from the Grand Opening.
How can you tell the difference? ha ha
Not sure if this was posted elsewhere:
The Galleria is in its death throes and yet the lights stay on. We asked eight writers and a photographer to find the meaning of the mall
I'm really hoping that shitty, decaying mall gets a massive redevelopment in the near future. I'd say chances are quite high considering all the other proposals along the Queensway.This thread itself is a dead place, but Kipling Queensway Mall is dying. The Zellers store, one of only two in Canada closes for good on January 26th. Once it closes, Sobeys will be the only major draw there. I think it will become the next Honeydale
I've heard rumours that it will be torn down soon and turned into a expanded and wider space for the Gardiner and an expanded off ramp at Kipling, but these are rumours.I'm really hoping that shitty, decaying mall gets a massive redevelopment in the near future.
