Honest Ed's - A Toronto Landmark

Honest Ed's - A Toronto Landmark

Explore, March 24.

Honest Ed's is a landmark discount store located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is named for its proprietor, Ed Mirvish who opened the store in 1948 and oversaw its operations for almost sixty years, until his death in 2007.

Honest Ed's is prominently located on the corner of Bloor and Bathurst Streets, running the whole length of the block. The exterior is covered with huge red and yellow signs advertising the name of the store, lit up like a theatre marquee. The store sign uses 23,000 light bulbs. The store consists of two buildings connected by a walkway that links up the west building on Markham Street and the east building on Bathurst Street. The interior is much more modest, with simple displays of low-priced merchandise, ranging from vacuum cleaners and winter coats to kitchenware, toys and grocery items. Much of the store's decor consists of posters and photos from old films and stage productions from Mirvish's theatres in Toronto and London, England. Every piece of store signage is hand-painted. The outside facade is covered with humorous puns and slogans such as Come in and get lost! and Only the floors are crooked!

Honest Ed's gained fame for its marketing stunts, including loss leader specials and free turkey giveaways before Christmas and Thanksgiving Day holidays. Mirvish is also famous in Toronto for the birthday parties he threw for himself from 1988 until his death. At the street parties, there are free cakes, meals, hot dogs, candy, and giveaways. Crowds of Torontonians turn up with their children, and stand in long lines to receive these handouts. The happening is accompanied by live bands and balloons.


Complexe Pointe-Claire plaza.

Complexe Pointe-Claire plaza.

Complexe Pointe-Claire is one of the biggest plaza-type shopping centres in the Montreal area. It is located at the northeast corner of St. John's Boulevard (Boulevard St.-Jean) and Highway 40, right across the street from Fairview Pointe-Claire, the big "destination" mall for Montreal's West Island suburbs.

It opened in 1986 with the main anchors being Maxi (Provigo's chain of large-scale discount supermarkets), Toys R' Us, and the Cineplex-Odeon Pointe-Claire cinema, which closed soon after the gigantic Famous Players Colisee Kirkland opened a few miles to the west in 1999. In the 1990's, Future Shop and Chapters bookstore were added, and, more recently, a CIBC bank now fills the former Cineplex-Odeon space.

If I remember correctly, when the Toys R' Us opened in 1986, it was opened up by none other than David Hasselhoff from Knight Rider.

This Autostitch collage looks as though it was taken in December, with snow falling, but it was actually taken during an early spring snowfall in April 2008.

The source photos were actually shot on film with my Nikon F65 SLR camera (because my Kodak EasyShare C643 Zoom camera had died earlier that afternoon after getting soaked in Sainte Anne de Bellevue). While I have done a few other Autostitches based on film photos, this is the first one I have ever assembled from photos that I scanned from 5" x 7" shots (because I couldn't find the CD I got when I developed the roll of film with these photos at Wal-Mart).
