  • Thread starter marksimpson7843
  • Start date
Club 120 at 120 Church Street is closing:


Noooooooooooooooooooooooo, dammit, Rocket......too young.

One of the best parties I've ever been to was here.

The pissers were a disaster. The music was the best. The people were beautiful/high af.

RIP The Rocket. You'll just be a memory forever now.

I remember when Woolco was replaced by Wal-Mart. That started it all in Canada.
 
1994: The Beginning of the Inevitable Decline of Independent Retailers in Canada

I just found the quality declined. You went from upstanding stores to low quality crap.

I still have items from Woolco and Eatons after 25 years but Wal-Mart crap dies out after a year or so.
