Honest Ed’s is still shaking things up despite its December 2016 closing date.
The landmark discount store will be teaming up with former mayor Mel Lastman’s furniture store. Bad Boy will be opening under Honest Ed’s roof in November. It will occupy 12 000 square feet in place of record store Sonic Boom on Bathurst Street.
The announcement was made on Sunday morning during Honest Ed’s 66th anniversary celebrations.
They were giving out free food, t-shirts and balloons.
General Manager Russell Lazar said it is a win-win situation. “We think we’re both in the right bargain business with affordable prices and we hope Torontonias are going to benefit,” he said.
Bad Boy is set to stay at the Bathurst location until Honest Ed’s closes.
