Token

Um, where did Token go?

Has Token abruptly plunged into the Deadpool?

Walking past 888 Queen St W today I was surprised to find no sign of Token, instead people putting in new light fixtures, sweeping the floor, and lettering on the glass advertising the space as an art gallery.

I often think Token is one block over from where they actually are, but I definitely double-checked, and they are definitely not where they're supposed to be (unless this egg nog is off and causing me to be mildly delusional. Which I will leave on the table as a possibility).

There is no word on their blog that they've moved or closed, just a sudden lack of them at their store.

I've sent an email asking about their abrupt disappearing act, but does anyone know what's up?

UPDATE: Confirmed by email, Token is only dipping their toes in the Deadpool. As jojo suggested in the comments, their lease came up and, after much consideration, they decided not to renew. Token will be relaunching in Spring 2009, hopefully nearby, and we'll be sure to let you where and when they do.
