Toronto explores creating grants for music venues

The money would be targeted toward bars and clubs feeling the pressure of increasing property taxes – but the provincial government could stand in the way

Why don't they just introduce commercial rent control instead of this?

Renos currently taking place in the old TD Bank/Elephant & Castle spot @ Yonge & Gerrard. No idea who's going in there.
I'd be curious to know who's moving in.....

I read on RedFlagDeals that Sport Check 2529 Yonge is having a closing sale.

I dropped by that Sport Chek today and can confirm they're having a closing sale. Whole store is 40% off and most of the good inventory is moving quick. I picked up a couple pairs of running shoes.

It looks like Rogers is taking over the Forever 21 building at Yonge and Dundas - unless it's just advertising.

Superette is opening at 1073 Yonge Street, a block north of Rosedale subway station. They're a Cannabis retailer headquartered in Toronto and had their first shop in Ottawa.

Yes, this has been in the process for a while. The scaffolding surrounding the store just came down. They are in the midst of replacing the signage on the top of the building with a larger LCD billboard that curves around the roof.

Apparently Balzac's is set to go national.

Today there are 14 of the artisanal coffee outposts with 4 under development.

But the goal, it seems is now 100-150 across the nation.

The owner is remaining w/the company; though ceding the CEO post to a former Swiss Chalet/Nandos etc. exec.

.

Personally, I'm dubious, I like this chain; and I'm all for it if they can maintain what makes it special; but I'm concerned that's hard to do at 100+ outposts.

Hopefully it'll work out.
