S.S. Kresge Abandons Coxwell

The S.S. Kresge store on Coxwell where Gerrard turns to Eastwood in 1988. The struggling retail chain had seen better days and its troubles were well known. It is now a Dollar Tree. Image: Doug Griffin / Toronto Star / Toronto Public Library, Baldwin Collection, Item TSPA 0015111f.

After having recently been stuck on a short turn of the 506, I couldn’t help but notice the neat brickwork at the top of the Dollar Tree store on Coxwell. After tripping over the photograph above for an unrelated search, I decided to dig a little.
