Toronto non-mall retail (Odds & Ends)

  • Thread starter marksimpson7843
  • Start date
Speaking of the above....

The Coxwell store has not yet reopened, nor have permits even been issued for renovation/reconstruction.

According to local community sources....

Loblaws has been acquiring the storefronts to its south along this stretch.

To what ultimate purpose is not yet clear (merely a larger store, or a different redevelopment scheme altogether)
Just saw this posted on a Facebook group (I have no idea what "storming" means!)
NoFrills at coxwell,has started reconstruction, first phase said to be 2-3 months, then new equpment, storming store
Probably an autocorrect failure on the word 'stocking'.

[...] (I have no idea what "storming" means!)

Probably an autocorrect failure on the word 'stocking'.

No, I'm pretty sure they meant storming. This is a popular grocery store in the area, with some really good prices.

It's sad to see unique stores with character close down in this city and yet, so many corporate chains opening up.

I like corporate chains, so I'm happy with that part. As for this store, it isn't being lost due to a corporate retail chain, so I don't see a connection.
There is signage on the front and back of the old No Frills store on Coxwell saying "Construction Starting Soon" and there's also a rendering but its hard to tell if its the same size or an expanded store.
