Rumah Dips Toe In Deadpool

Shh...quick, need to fill a condo? Honours for the newest deadpool entry go to yet another shop likely crushed by the massive glut of prices in housing. Despite the Ontario government offering last week a new provincial tax break for homes under $400,000, that's not likely going to affect any business on the cusp of closing nor probably foster any sort of change in the mindset of older business owners pondering closing up and moving on.

Local furniture importer Rumah at 668 Queen Street West is pulling up roots after 30 years in Toronto under owner Judy Stevens.

Among the remains of stock here include huge Indonesian-teak desks to write letters on, lamps to read by and cabinets with shelving five inches thick...take that IKEA! Everything is fifty percent off.

For whatever it's worth, for the last few months or so, the shops here have been totally blocked off by a massive scaffolding intrusion. I always wonder what it must be like to be a tenant when that magical letter arrives noting a landlord's intent to destroy window display space or pedestrian access with imposing renovation projects.

Nothing is mentioned on a 2003 era website.

Doors soon to close on Indonesian teak importer Rumah.
