Wow that's terrible. Perhaps contacting the BIA to discourage retailers from installing the film?

I'm not necessarily opposed to all window film. I think there can be some fairly respectable one-third wraps or 'trims.' But we need to tame this beast before it gets worse.

East of this, west of that
The Ten Spot seems to have done this at many (all?) of its locations.
Ten Spot appears to have removed all this window film, and has returned to having windows that one can use to actually see inside. I can only assume that my one whiny post above was the prompt Ten Spot needed to do the right thing.

On a related matter, I am old enough to remember when frosted windows like this meant that the business sold porn magazines or videos:

How about they make a nice product display that changes regularly on part of the window wall I kinda like this when they did it at the Canadian tire at Bay and Dundas. Then people can window shop, I think its better than the crappy stock photos shoppers uses. Although they should avoid stacking product like on the right side of the image.

Only fix is to have an interior corridor between the exterior window and the retail store, so that the wall of the retail unit is not the same as wall of the condo.
