Flow Gets Drowned Out

Like too many fish in a tank, it looks like three was overcapacity for the mani+pedi cluster at Queen and Tecumseth.

In the past few years the intersection has gone from no options to too many. Within 20 paces of each other was Aliviar, The Ten Spot, and Flow (that's not even counting B.Skin, Elixir and Pure+Simple down at King). The pressure to attend to your cuticles was a bit intense.

Shortly after they all opened a few years ago, I wondered how long and who would last. It seems that Flow, formerly of 753 Queen Street West, is the first casualty. Which is not that surprising. While the window and entry displays were always clean and crisp, I could probably count on one hand the number of people I ever saw going in. It was far, far too quiet.

Their windows are papered over and there is a 'For Rent' sign on the glass. There is no notice posted that they're relocating elsewhere.
