If my recollection and Google serves me right, Yonge & Davisville was one of 5 original Toronto locations opened in January, 1996. Sad to see it go after 25 years.

Davisville as well?! I spent a decent amount of time there during my year living in that area.

I think the list is horribly inaccurate. As I said the 253 Jarvis Location is on there but I know for a fact it is not closing.

The Yonge and College store is quite busy and it would shock me if it closed. That being said the Yonge and Bloor location closed so anything is possible.

My guess is that the one in the Metro at Yonge and College may have made it redundant for the time being. But yeah, that store is always busy, and the one in the metro doesn't take mobile orders so it would be a shame if it actually closed.

Personally I prefer a full location over a kiosk style location.

For me it's about the quality of the store with the full location having the better, more knowledgeable staff with a better overall atmosphere.

I used to go to the Maple Leaf Square Longos location and found it to be lacking compared to the proper store across the street in 25 york.

The hours for Yonge & College on Google Maps now show that store is staying open - an edit was made on Friday.

I'm ok with hipsters - they've made the city a lot more interesting than it would otherwise be without them.

🤔

...yeeeeaaaaah, I think we can go with that.

I mean, they've done nothing for me, except maybe the Dog and Bear, but some of my friends resemble this description so there's that.
