More Changes in Ossington Village

Studio Gang Changes in Ossington Village

This June, we’ve already addressed many new business opening soon and a few closings in Ossington Village. There are more changes, including some restaurant and retail news in Ossington Village.

Mr. Flamingo Closed for Renovations

It was recently reported that Dundas West restaurant Mr. Flamingo closed for good. Not true, Mr. Flamingo says on Instagram, chiding the source: it’s only closed for renovations. The popular neighborhood restaurant and bar at 1265 Dundas West is closed temporarily and will be back serving food and drinks in August.

Studio Gang is Closed

112 Ossington is now empty: Studio Gang vacated the premises and shut down operations. This fashion boutique run by designer Deborah Korosec was open in the Ossington space for for over 15 years. This closing of one of Ossington’s oldest businesses marks a real end of an era for the strip. Ossington is evolving and we are living through it.
