No Frills

The Planning Advisory Committee yesterday approved Loblaws application to build a No Frills brand grocery store on the N.E. corner of Wyandotte St W. & Crawford.

Most of the houses that will be demolished have already been purchased by Loblaws. Here are the ones that are already vacant.

Of note, this one above is pretty old. That Gothic style peaked roof in the front usually dates to about the 1870’s.

On the plus side, it should create 175 new jobs. Any anytime we as consumers can get a little bit of competition in the low cost grocery market, we all win.
