That location must have some bad juju or something.

I mean, it was previously a Solutions (for just 1 year??), and shortly before that, a Staples.

For the sake of all the pet owners in that area, I hope this PetSmart lasts.

According to a window sign a restaurant will be opening upstairs (in what was Staples' & Solutions' 2nd floor). Interesting combination.

I used to live in this area. I loved it. That said, it was a bit strange that the retail/restaurants had such mixed success.

I think that the retail outlets with the most success were those which were universally embraced; regardless of whether you were a condo-owner/house-owner OR new Canadian (lots of Chinese/Korean in the area) or old Canadian.

So basically, Loblaws and Best Buy are very succesful and always busy.

I suspect that PetSmart WILL be succesful, since owning pets is common for all of the socio-economic/ethnic groups in that area. I just wish one was there when I lived there! We used to drive up past Steeles to board our dog.
