Green Shoots of Spring

So I went away for a week or so and now I have a long list of things to tell you about.  No time for a preamble…

1. Carter’s Ice Cream store opened today and apparently opening day was extremely well attended.  A beautiful day helped I’m sure, but it’s easy to come up with good reasons to go for ice cream – especially when they’re so darn nice.

2. Country in the City is a garden accessories store that is set to open at 1769 Danforth (on the south side, west of McDonalds near Red Sable).

3. Reeves Florist and Nursery of Woodbride is opening April 15th (thanks Jen for letting me know).  This new GTA location is on the Danforth in the old Budget space near Greenwood.

4. Coffee Coffee is a new place getting ready to open in early April on the southwest corner of Danforth and Woodbine.  My intel is that the owner used to sell her wares at farmers’ markets outside of the city and has now moved into Toronto.

5. The former ‘Wind Jammers’ store across from Value Village will soon be a Rogers dealer.

P.S.  The Beaches Easter Parade is this Sunday at 2 p.m. from Munro to Woodbine.  A couple of Harlem Globetrotters will be the parade marshals and will be dilly dallying throughout the route.

  1. Thanks for the update! Some other retail news from this week: Better Bulk is now selling some Rowe Farms meats and dairy products including eggs. Cruelty and hormone free–marvelous products.

  2. I just got back from Coffee Coffee and OMG!!!!!! It is GORGOUS! The name doesn’t do it justice. I had thought it was somehow linked to Pizza Pizza, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s modern and beautiful inside–spacious and airy– and instead of ceiling tiles they use burlap coffee bags adorned with the logos of fair trade coffee. Really neat. They do all their own baking and try to use organic ingredients where possible. They have breads and strudels, killer cinnamon buns. Today for lunch they’ll have lasagna and soup–it wasn’t out yet when I was there at 10. I think this is their first day open and it will be exciting to see their full product line. I spoke with Vera, who owns Coffee Coffee with her sister. Very friendly and professional. I can’t believe that after all these years of no bakeries in this neighbourhood suddenly we have two!

  3. The new Roger’s dealer coming, do you know if there will be a bill payment at this location and when will it be opening?
