Ten Editions Bookstore to Close
Catherine Nasmith | July 7, 2017

+ return to list

From Issue No. 259 | July 11, 2017

Ten Editions bookstore at 698 Spadina Avenue in Toronto, a neighbourhood institution that the community has been trying to save through heritage designation has announced it will close. University of Toronto owns the building and wants to redevelop the site for student housing. The little building is humble but has all of its original woodwork and tuckpointing, hidden under a lot of paint.

The city may be able to save the building, but the business could not withstand the pressure. 

Its a cultural loss for U of T, and for Harbord Village.
