Main Drug Mart, which has long held the southwest corner position at Dundas and Ossington, is moving down the street to 1169 Dundas Street West.
1169 Dundas Street West used to be the home to a Portuguese store called Silver Town. I never really visited that store, but it’s not a corner lot like the current Drug Mart space, so appears to be smaller.
No word as to why the move from the prime corner spot at 1147 Dundas Street West. I stopped in at the existing location the other day to find out more, but couldn’t get an answer from staffers as to why the business is moving. They did deny the building being sold, so maybe rent went up and/or they want a smaller space.
The move is scheduled to be done pretty quickly: the new store will be open for a community celebration on Monday, October 31.
