Well, this is a nice surprise! Not half-bad for artifacts, either. One '50s Dominion still peddling groceries as Food Basics. The old Loblaws at 811 Princess St still has (brick-ups over) side windows visible. The Metro at 310 Barrie St. reuses the A&P off-centre signpole.

The '80s A&P at 466 Gardiners Rd. is a carbon copy of 155 Clarke Rd. in London. (Which supposedly dates to 1975. Hmm.)
