FB post reports that Sobey’s on Mt. Pleasant to close soon

A post to Leaside Community Facebook says that Sobey’s Urban Fresh store at Mt. Pleasant Rd. near Soudan  Ave. will close in October. The reason given was that a related company, Farm Boy, will soon open at Yonge St. and Soudan Ave. The assumption is that location is the new Art Shoppe Lofts and Condos at 2131 Yonge St., but no firm address has been published. Both Sobey’s and Farm Boy are owned by Empire Company of Stellarton, Nova Scotia. Farm Boy is a favourite with many shoppers but the old rule that most people go to the grocery store closest to their homes seems likely to prevail.
