I was there in time for the Door Opener sales this morning, but being a noob, I dashed down to the grocery department in the basement for my $0.29 figs when I should've hit the 3rd floor, where the bargain cognoscenti were headed. So I wound up one position shy of getting the deal. Anyway, now the rest of you know.
But my trip wasn't entirely wasted. I picked up knock-off "Crocs" style sandals at $3.99 a pair, 3-pack sports socks for $0.99 (the 99-cent sale was on), and a couple tins of Made-in-USA luncheon meat for $0.99 each.
There's an elevator that goes from basement to the 2nd floor but not the 3rd. The store straddles two buildings and is connected down in the basement as well as by a bridge on the 2nd floor.
They accept only cash or debit. It's a real Toronto tourist icon, and the founder is quite the legend (check out the Wiki for Ed Mirvish), his Honest Ed's store proudly and gaudily displaying all his quotes and pictures. It's a good thing food's all around the place--Indian buffets, felafel, and a whole stretch called Korea Town, from Bathurst subway station right there all the way west down Bloor St. to Christie subway station.
