Great new store

The November 15 1929 Toronto Daily Star contained an ad for a new Kresge’s store at 992 Bloor Street West:


The store originally occupied 992 and 994 Bloor West, which had been previously occupied by, respectively, a men’s furnishings store and a confectionery. Eventually, it expanded to consume 996 Bloor as well.

This Kresge’s remained at this location until at least 1969 (the latest date that I can view city directories online). The building still stands, though the facing has been remodelled – it is now a Scotiabank.
