Eastside Blight

First a Woolco, this massive store anchored the Eastown Plaza at Tecumseh and Lauzon Roads in Windsor’s far east end, along with local grocery store N&D.

While Woolco went under in the US in 1983, they hung around in Canada until 1994, when the Boys from Bentonville bought them out, and converted the stores to Wal-Marts.

The store stayed busy, until Sprawl-mart figured they needed a new store, and so they shuffled a few blocks west, and the old Woolco, as the anchor of the once mighty Eastown Plaza sits vacant.
