A Fond Farewell to Honest Ed's

Honest Ed's

In this episode, we say goodbye to a bargain era and bid a fond farewell to Honest Ed’s, the  iconic Toronto retailer. Everyone loves a bargain, and many shared tender memories of shopping at the funhouse for entertainment or need.  Times change, people pass on and leave possessions and legacy in their wake.

We encourage all former Honest Ed's shoppers to come to the final farewell party, February 23-26, 2017.
