Honest Ed’s for sale

Posted on July 16th, 2013 Won't you help brighten a lonely comment's day?

The iconic Honest Ed’s store has been put up for sale.

For many people, the thought of this Bathurst Street mainstay going up for sale is unthinkable, right up there with Sam the Record Man on Yonge Street going out of business. Yet this is the fate that befell the stalwart music dealer, so it’s not impossible that Ed’s 65 years of tradition may also fall to the axe of profit-driven progress.

Judging by the impassioned pace at which the Mirvish family is decimating their father’s legacy, this couldn’t happen any sooner.

Were it most other stores in Toronto, this wouldn’t be quite so tragic, but Ed’s has become a tradition and a bit of a tourist destination, just another one of those things that makes the city unique and worth visiting.

Is it time for Honest Ed's to go?

    This makes me incredibly sad. It’s not about you, it’s just that I have so many memories that I can’t even count!

    I remember buying pencil crayons there with my first allowance a becoming a wanna be Artiste. Heh! From food to clothing, it is the place to shop!

    Mirvish is beyond greedy and is more than tarnishing his father’s name!
    Money corrupts, people.
