Here is the scene at Honest Eds just before Christmas 2016. Of course lots of activity as its shopping time and for one final spree Torontonians can indulge themselves in the search for bargains to be found at Honest Eds.
And a year later the Store is enduring a slow dismantling in December; but this is well faster than the TTC repairs at Royal York station, now pushing into 2019.
Yet there is an enduring charm that is conjured up as you walk on by the remnants, the tapering off of Honest Eds. There are glimpses and memories of the marketing and graphic magic that made Honest Eds a place to enjoy, even revel in.
