Honest Ed’s is a massive discount store at the corner of Bathurst and Bloor St. This year it will celebrate it’s 58th anniversary and will most likely still be around in another 42 years. You may ask, however, why have we classified it as a gift from Toronto? Could it be because here we can find the cheapest brand, type, colour of any neccessity imaginable? Or could it be because of the free meals and giveaways organized on a regular basis by the owner, Ed Mirvish? Or better yet maybe because it serves as proof that there are still local buisnesses doing exceedingly well and contributing to the local community despite multi-national corporate giants such as Wall-Mart.
In short Honest Ed’s is a definite must see.
