While its not a list, the CBC story seems to have a bit more information such as:If they've quantified this as 52, rather than just a round number, then there's a list out there.
Anyone seen it?

Right. In retail you don't announce anythimg until you absolutely have to. I'm sure they announced today because at least one party out there had to be informed for a notice period, either suppliers or a union. Beyond that you won't hear of any store closures they don't need to announce until they are literally days from happening.While its not a list, the CBC story seems to have a bit more information such as:
They'll probably release a list eventually.
Oh, that's interesting. I always assumed that the store survived because they were waiting for the right time to redevelop the store site, but didn't know they owned adjacent properties.Loblaws owns the two big homes south of the Broadview Store as well as the property to the north. This property will most likely be redeveloped.
In a word, 'no'.Are there any plans to open a proper big Loblaws near Bay & Bloor, in the PATH?
I guess we shouldn't be surprised that they want to sell even more prepared foods than they already do. If Eataly opens there will be a lot more stiff competition.In a word, 'no'.
Bloor St. Market is the mainstream Loblaws for this area.
The company is also looking to add Eataly.
The former, may get a modest expansion, as they want to create new in-house kitchens and go even more high-end and w/more store-made product. To be determined.
