Come in and get lost!
The iconic Honest Ed’s closed its doors for good in 2016. In an everchanging urban landscape, it was the latest casualty in city’s the pursuit of modern condos and big box retailers—truly an end of an era.
With over 23,000 light bulbs, the famous Honest Ed’s sign—which caressed the corners of Bloor and Bathurst—was one of the most photographed landmarks in the city. Locals and tourist alike itched to snap a photo after grabbing their low-ticket treasures and trinkets.
But, what happens when the city you love starts to change? It’s a complicated and touchy subject no matter who you ask. However, no one can argue the impact Honest Ed’s had on the city and the people who love it.
Fans of the now defunct bargain store also had a love affair with the renowned Honest Ed’s Alley. A short-cut for locals, but another space to explore for visitors and tourists alike. The alley was just as flashy as the rest of the store—yet was shrouded in mystery, especially at night.
It was home to the walkway which connected the stores two retail spaces, and acted as a hub for the arts, culture, events, and personal expression. Do you miss it yet?
