As we’ve mentioned in past newsletters, the DECA Business
Revitalization Team has been working hard since January to clean up
some of the businesses along Danforth. What we affectionately call the
Facelift team has cleaned, swept, painted, nailed, peeled and done
just about a million other things that needed to be done on what is
now adding up to four storefronts.
The most recent facelift was done on a store that many of you have
possibly passed by without a second glance – the Universal Diaper
store at 1987 Danforth. In a neighbourhood undergoing a serious baby
boom, a good baby/kids store is a necessity. What most people don’t
realize is that inside the Diapers store is a great treasure trove of
Bummies diapers (of course!), very cheap kids clothes, sunhats,
Swimmies, wooden toys and some of the cutest shoes we’ve ever seen.
DECA helped to clean up the store’s interior and rearrange all their
great stuff. You might have also noticed that one of our DECA members
is a professional window display designer and has added some sparkle
to the front window. It looks fantastic and has created an instant
improvement. An added bonus: the cleanup created a new stroller
parking area for moms shopping with their babes!
If you don’t have babies or kids, it’s a great place to shop for gifts
other people’s kids, so check it out and remember: shop local!!
