After a recent OMB ruling upheld City Council’s decision, stores in the Glebe will be allowed to open this Monday. For a number of reasons, I never liked this decision (short version: insufficient consultations, dishonest process, this should have been a bigger discussion), but it’s the law now, so go have a good time at Winner’s on Monday, if you like.
This whole issue seemed to start about a year and a half ago when Whole Foods decided to open illegally on Good Friday. (Remember when Landsowne was going to be good, respectful neighbours?). Yesterday, I was walking past Whole Foods and I happened to notice a sign (pictured) in their doorway. Whole Foods will be closed on Thanksgiving Monday.
