Local restauranteurs will have to travel a bit further for their restaurant supplies as Booga Store and Restaurant Equipment has shuttered it’s doors. Restoration and construction is well underway for The Academy of Lions, which is going into the location at 64 Ossington. Two carpenters were working hard on a Sunday afternoon prepping for the new tenants. We shopped at Booga a few times for some household kitchen goods, and I’m sure some of the local restaurants found it convenient, but the interior evoked the old Ossington, with lots of dust and messily stocked shelves. The time was ripe to cash in on the changing neighbourhood and upgrade the location.
Academy of Lions, a local fitness club, is relocating from their spot on Dundas West which is going to become condo residences built by stylish local builder RAW Design.
