Fabricland to take retail space at Honest Ed's
Honest Ed's valuable retail space continues to be divided up as the iconic retailer runs out its last months at Bathurst and Bloor. The latest retailer to take space within the walls of iconic discount retailer is Fabricland, who announced its plans for a new location there earlier today. The space is reported to be between 16,000 and 18,000 square feet, and will open next month.
It will join Bad Boy as the second major retailer to set up shop at Honest Ed's since Sonic Boom vacated in fall 2014. Both spaces will be temporary as the building is set to be shuttered come January 1, 2017. I suppose that makes this new store something of a pop-up, although the idea of referring to anything related to Fabricland as a pop-up is at least somewhat absurd (you need local or artisan-made or at least useless products to use such a designation, don't you?).
In any case, it would appear that Honest Ed's won't exactly ride out the string in one piece. But, hey, the signs have been sold, so it's all about the big fade now, anyway.
