AFTER 114 YEARS AT THE CORNER OF BLOOR AND YONGE, STOLLERYS IS NO MORE

STOLLERYS1 STOLLERYS has been a Bloor Street West menswear retailer of British and European apparel since 1901.  It’s being taken down and will be replaced in the near future by a skyscraper designed by prominent British architect, NORMAN FOSTER.  Developer SAM MIZRAHI bought the building in October, applied immediately for a demolition permit, it was approved on Friday, and work began on Sunday.  Things happen fast at the ‘crossroads of TORONTO’.
