Crocs is also doing well with surgeons. Even Crocs' own website has a section for surgeons: https://www.crocs.com/c/shop-by/activity/doctor-shoes
Their collaboration with musicians like Post Malone and Luke Combs looks to have helped them rebound in the US. Along with design/fashion collaborations with PizzaSlime, Balenciaga and also artist Takashi Murakami. They've also just signed with actress Priyanka Chopra to be their global brand ambassador for their 2020 campaign.

Apparently, Lowe's Place in Etobicoke may need to be renamed to whichever business is the new tenant.

Kinda like how No Frills Lane used to be Loblaws Lane. Same ownership though, innit.

(Scarborough, at Eglinton/Danforth)

My guess is the place is torn down and rezoned residential. 401 and Islington needs housing, not big box hardware. Though the placement of Etobicoke North Go Station and otherwise TTC is not ideal to serve this as a new residential area.

Etobicoke North Station will likely disappear. Resources Road is not a great site for anything, including the former Health laboratories (which moved to MaRS). Though that didn't stop that awful townhouse development on the old WSIB site on Torbarrie Road (which has similar isolation to just about everything, including transit).

^I used to drive past that townhouse development and it always struck me as oddly located. Easy highway access, though - the 400 was just inches away ;)
