Photo Du JourWindsor

Old Canadian Tire

Up today is a photo from a few years ago, showing the old Canadian Tire. Probably the last “major” retailer to pull out of downtown. I used to go to this store all the time, it was old and neat, it had two floors, and stairs… Stairs? Not any more, the slobs need one sprawled out level now.

After sitting vacant for half a decade, it was demolished, and the City bought it and it is supposed to be the home of the new bus station… LMFAO! Shovels should be in the ground any day….
