Coven, who lives in Toronto, hopes the BiWay name will give him a competitive advantage in the new retail landscape.
That name was a little odd 20 years ago, and it hasn't aged well.

We used to call it “BW Boutique” just to class it up a little.

It should be better off now, given how soft and and offended people are now, it has made them accepting of anything and everything. So the name should fit right in with the new society of soft people.

The discount retail landscape has changed since Biway's heydays. It'll need to be distinguished from Dollarama, so better goods at higher than $4 price points, but then you start getting into Walmart territory. Both stores have killed their immediate competition over the years (EFADS, K-Mart, Zellers, etc.).

Something like Giant Tiger might work.

I thought it morphed into Giant Tiger.
I thought they all closed and dollarama picked up most of the leases/spaces

Funny we were talking about this store a few weeks ago.

How we made fun of classmate's who buy their clothes there. Looking back, we were acting stupid.

I got some good deals at Bi Way and some pretty good quality stuff too.
Khaki coloured levis, Hanes signature fleece tops and pants for cheapo prices.
Then there was also the "rain check".
I prefer to shop Giant Tiger today than Walmart, there just isn't any close to where I live.

I used to buy clothes there. I didn't think anyuthing of it since we were poor. Come tot hink of them now, their clothes reminds me of the episode where Homer's Mr. Plow jacket disintegrates in the rain.

where exact the location?

I hope a store like Five Below will comes to Toronto..
IMHO alot of the stuff I saw there should have been $2-4. I'm sure we'll see the 'rama hitting a fin as their top end soon anyways.
