I was told that the former chicken place on Franklin is going to be a Starbucks. Is there any truth to this rumour? With the black siding on the windows, it would appear that might be a trademark Starbucks storefront. Can anyone confirm this?
The weird intersection - where Dundas meets Dupont meets annette..and eventually Weston...
There's a coffee time and an Active Green & Ross.
It looks like maybe beside the active green & ross they're putting in a Tim Horton's.
Anyone know anything about this development?
I find that Tim Horton's usually kills off Coffee Times and often times that means a neighbourhood has officially made it. Well, more so with the elimination of coffee time. I'm not being cruel, it's been mentioned before.
Anyway - anyone know anything of the development?
The Beer Store has opened a new Recycling Plus depot at 299 Campbell Ave., at the corner of Dupont St.
This is not a Beer Store, but just a place to return empties. For patrons of our local Beer Store on Symington Ave., the most noticeable change will likely be that there will no longer be huge lineups of people returning empties to the same place that we purchase the full ones from.
It's also interesting to note that this Recycling Plus depot may start accepting other types of recyclable materials in the future too: E-waste, paint, etc.
Here's a City News video story about it.
It's also worth noting that 299 Campbell Ave. has a development proposal on it, so who knows how long this depot will last, or how it might change.
While those involved in puppet-making and performance are no doubt aware of how to find the shop, the stretch of Dupont where Open Door is located is a bit off the beaten path. “Foot traffic is a challenge on this strip,” says Bigham. However, this was not always the case. “Evidently, in the early ’50s this was a very commercial street,” Bigham says. “People would get on the train and come down from North Toronto—it was quite a vital neighbourhood.” And, in some ways, with the current influx of young families to the area, Bigham sees it making something of a return to its former self, saying, “the neighbourhood is changing—it’s stroller city!”
In addition to doorway theatres, Bigham also produces larger theatres for schools and libraries—”the first one was commissioned by a grade 10 teacher; now, we’re five years on and we’ve shipped to Italy and all over the states”—and sells a wide assortment of puppets both new, many of her own design and “museum quality vintage,” with the oldest dating back to the ’30s.
She’s currently working on a proposal to take over a building just down the street from her shop to open what would be the city’s only full-time puppet theatre. “I’m hoping it’ll start in October,” she says, “There’s going to be seven performances, once a month on a Sunday. We’ve got this beautiful little venue over here. Five all-ages performances, one adult and one ‘puppet slam’—an open mic for people that are serious.”
