June 17, 2011. I noticed this vacant store at Bloor St. and Sterling Rd. was looking a little different when I passed by on my way home from work tonight.
The old sign for the short-lived "C-Store" had been removed, revealing a mostly-intact old "8-11 Variety Store" sign. I guess this means that someone is fixing up the building for another purpose, again. Wonder what it'll be?
According to Wikipedia, the 7-11 names comes from the original stores' operating hours, "open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m." back in 1927. I wonder if the owners of this place slept in until 8?
