Are old corner stores being replaced by new general stores



Corner stores have become an old phenomenon. There is something about the corner variety stores that creates an intimacy in Toronto's inner city neighbourhoods. Often family owned, they are well stocked with convenience items from toiletries, non perishables, staple foods, eggs, milk, bread, soft drinks, the kit kat candy bars to local newspapers. This is the hub of where the community comes together to chit chat about the latest news and minutiae of life. With rising Toronto real estate prices, urbanization and competition from big box stores, grocery chains and drug stores, these commercial properties nestled in the heart of the neighbourhood side streets have become rare typologies. Instead we are seeing more of these corner properties being replaced by independent coffee bars, restaurants and boutique businesses. Will this type of shopping culture become obsolete?
