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.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
