Are movie theatres open ?

Well the fact that people are calling it T&T "downtown" should of probably been a clue. My mother lived on the scarb/east york border and we used to go there when it was Knob Hill Farms and she called the location "downtown"...just simply cherry street.

thats it, trust all the hipster refugee kids piling into downtown toronto from all parts of Canada

I checked this site late Good Friday morning. I took the bus to TnT Cherry St. It was NOT OPEN as was written. I had to walk home because TTC bus was on holiday schedule. I am 79 years old. Pls don't write what you think. only chevked facts.

It's always helpful to call the actual store - such as TnT rather than trust websites, especially if getting around is particularly difficult for one. The TTC schedule is always clear and posted on their website or if you call, I can't feel bad if someone can't look that up or simply ask a TTC employee. Google isn't monitored for correct information...

re: T&T Supermarkets. All you complainers making the trip, especially you that drove to Markham (boo hoo) that were uninformed from an apparent unreliable news source...and you apparently live in Toronto, would know that China town is open. Just go to Dundas and Spadina to... Kai Wei Supermarket, 253 Spadina Ave. Do your research, or just take a walk on a nice Sunny day. Sad really you lot are. :(

where can I purchase beer on Sunday near airport.
Hey Fever / April 20, 2014 at 06:11 pm
@ Tony. Only Microbreweries are open. I don't know of any by the airport. If you can make it to downtown Toronto Bellwoods Brewery on Ossington is selling until 11.
