everyday ordinary beauty surrounds us
I heard about this. Can't believe there is so much excitement for a supermarket! I think I'll have to visit it though. ;)
It's a long story...for those not familiar Maple Leaf Gardens used to be a hockey arena. (Think Madison Square Gardens, but in Toronto). The team moved to a newer shinier location about 12 years ago and this 'shrine' has sat empty until yesterday.
I was down on Grenville St twice yesterday and thought of walking over but I heard the crowds were huge so I didn't. I saw on the news that they have the old centre ice marked in the middle of the store floor - cool!
I am heading back tomorrow afternoon to go inside if either of you would like to join me
that's some sign!it looks like it's for a Broadway show
Great billboard! I haven't been there yet either. Looks very nice from what I saw on TV.
Wow! That is some sign! You people take your food almost as seriously as we do in Melbourne! ;-)
Wow, that really wants to make you have a look there, ain't it:)
Ha! I think Loblaws was mighty smart!
It looks almost too intimidating to go inside and grocery shop.
Quite a sign!! And what gorgeous, clear BLUE skies! Terrific capture for the day! Enjoy your weekend!Sylvia
I am crazy busy at this time of year! Thanks for the invite - enjoy.
Interesting advert.Sydney - City and Suburbs
If that sign doesn't draw attention, nothing will. I am *for* any business that re-uses/renovates a previous structure as opposed to building new. Seems there is so much waste in that regard (where I live).Thanks for your visit and comment on my sign. =)
I doubt if the food will be any better than at any other Loblaws! Nice blue sky.
From what I have seen on the news this Loblaws is one of a kind.
What a great looking sign!
Hi there - nice picture - but I'm not really sure it's good that people can get so excited about a super-market!Well, it takes all sorts I suppose.Stewart M - Melbourne
It is more the history of the building - it holds a special place in people's hearts and that is where the excitement comes from. The Weston family have made the most of that.I will post more about this when I go to see the inside later today.
wow!That's one big signboard.My SWF
I had missed this earlier -- thanks for giving the link on your later post with the great shopping cart picture. We love to visit different kind of grocery stores and this one MUST be worth a visit.
