This is where all the businesses in Mirvish Village moved to

Mirvish Village is a ghost town. All of the businesses on Markham Street hauled out before the end of January because the area will soon be redeveloped as part of the incoming Westbank project.

While some of the local stores and restaurants shut down for good, many others opened up in brand new locations. You can now find these former Mirvish Villagers scattered throughout the city.

Here's where they moved to.

A Different Booklist

After getting help for its move across the street, this bookstore opened its new space at 779 Bathurst St.

The Beguiling

One of the city's most beloved comic book shops is now in Little Italy at 319 College Street. Its kid-oriented offshoot, Little Island Comics, closed for good.

Butler's Pantry

While the Markham Street location shut down, you can still visit this restaurant at 371 Roncesvalles Ave.

The Central

For more than a decade, The Central gave up-and-coming musicians a space to perform. Owner Lucan Wei hopes to bring The Central's programming to his other bar and venue The Smiling Buddha.

Coal Miner's Daughter

This boutique still has three locations on the city's west side. It moved its Mirvish Village outpost to 3023 Dundas St., in the Junction.

Gigi's House of Frills

For vintage, and vintage-inspired, lingerie, head to Gigi's new location at 731 Dovercourt Road.
