Honest Ed’s Sign Gets an Encore Performance


The show must go on. When Honest Ed’s closed at the end of last year to make way for a block of rental towers, it seemed as though its infamous exterior signs were doomed to demolition. And yet, David Mirvish – son of Ed – has had a change of heart. Now, one of the shuttered bargain superstore’s nine-by-18-metre displays will be restored and installed on the side of another local building from Mirvish lore: the Ed Mirvish Theatre on Victoria Street, where flashing marquee lights are especially fitting.
