No Frills Reopening in Parkdale on 4/20

Good news for Parkdale residents

Could it be any coincidence, the dearly missed No Frills of Parkdale is reopening…on 4/20?

Munchies at the ready.

Vi’s No Frills on King Street West near Jameson closed suddenly in December of last year, leaving many Parkdale residents without a close and cost-efficient store to purchase groceries from.

The closure was cited as “emergency roof repair” by the owners, but many feared that Vi’s would never re-open, like the No Frills at Coxwell and Gerrard which never reopened after “building repairs and renovations.” However, an emergency shuttle has been operating every 15 minutes, taking customers from Vi’s to the closest No Frills at Dundas and Lansdowne since the sudden closure.

All things considered, it looks like the Parkdale grocery store will reopen, confirmed today by vice president of corporate affairs and communications at Loblaws Companies Ltd., Kevin Groh.
