Bad Boy to open store in Honest Ed's

Posted by Derek Flack / July 21, 2014

Honest Eds Bad BoyBad Boy is coming to Bathurst and Bloor in November -- specifically to the kingdom of kitsch known as Honest's Ed's. While there's not much time left for discount retailer (the store is set to close at the end of 2016), with Sonic Boom set to vacate come the fall, there's a lot of space left to fill as the store rides out its run before Westbank Corp. starts to redevelop the site.

Sold back in October 2013, Honest Ed's has been operating mostly business as usual since then, save for the nostalgic outpouring on display at a sign sale in the spring.

For his part, David Mirvish characterizes the partnership as something of a natural fit. "We have the space, we have an opportunity and we have the friendship," he told the Toronto Star of the deal. Bad Boy CEO and former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman promises that the new downtown outpost of his store will represent the best it has to offer -- deals galore! -- which, you know, is exactly what you'd expect him to say.

So enjoy your discounts while you can at Bathurst and Bloor. Honest Ed's is somehow going to get even more ostentatious before it all goes way.

It's replacing Sonic Boom, not Honest Ed's.

Maybe Mel will call in the armed forces on moving day to help unload the furniture in to his new space.
