We just got back from vacationing in Toronto where we visited some of my husband's relatives. His uncle kept telling me about Honest Ed's and how I had to go (since he knew how much I loved to shop). He told me you could buy underwear and shirts there for $1 and find just about anything else you needed.
Up until then I had shopped at the Toronto Eaton Center and Yorkdale mall and had spent quite a lot of money so bargains sounded nice. My husband and his cousins couldn't understand why I had to go to this place because they kept saying it was "crap" and "for the poor".
I should have listened to them because I walked through the store (many floors) and then walked out. From the outside the building looks like a fun place with flashing signs and lights and is huge.
I did see a dress I liked and picked it up to try on but I couldn't find a dressing room anywhere and noone was around to help me. Clothes were thrown about everywhere in heaps and heaps on tables. Nothing was protected by plastic so everyone's dirty hands were touching the clothes you might buy.
Picture a thrift store, dollar store or Good Will and that's Honest Ed's. Stuffy and smelly place.
