Some of these comments remind me of what Ed the Sock always says..."If you don't have anything good to say, say it often"
Watch a bunch of miserable people.
Where's the fresh duck?!?
Sorry mom. Are you saying we shouldn't voice any opinion, or offer suggestion if it isn't all roses and sunshine? Some of the criticism may be harsh or misdirected, but that's a natural part of debate and discussion; especially on a development forum.
I don't see why you're mocking a member for questioning the lack of fresh duck, it's not really some fancy exotic ingredient unless you're a meat 'n' potatahs person from the sticks (guffaw). It's pretty fair to expect it from a grocer that touts its selection of fresh food.
Now, about that Bulk Barn at Yonge. Nothing will convince me that is a good idea. It isn't an 'urban concept' Bulk Barn â€” it's the regular tacky yellow suburban Bulk Barn they usually put in low-end neighbourhoods. Oh! What a downtown experience: Bulk Barn.
I think what you're forgetting is that not every business downtown needs to be an "experience" or "destination". Lots of people live downtown, and lots of people will benefit from a bulk food store. It fills a need, since there aren't many bulk food options in the area, and yes, affluent condo dwellers appreciate the value of buying bulk as much as people in "low-end neighbourhoods"; more so than a lot of people considering how expensive the psf of their condos, no doubt!
