    During my Xmas shopping wanderings, I've seen a whole bunch of stores that are closing - some of them by Dec. 31. Hopefully you can check them out and find some great deals! Do take my notes with a grain of salt as Boxing Week shopping may have cleared some of these stores out a lot more than when I saw them. Feel free to comment if you know of any other stores.

    1. Honest Ed's
    - closing Dec. 31
    - I went last week, and the stuff looked pretty low-quality. Not sure if there is much worth buying, but they might still have the signs for sale if you'd like a keepsake.

    2. Fabric Land in Honest Ed's
    - already closed

    3. American Apparel
    - I saw that the one at Bay/Bloor is closing, but other locations might be closing too.
    - There should be some pretty good deals by now - more than 30% off for sure.

    4. William-Sonoma at Bay/Bloor
    - On Dec. 27 lots of stuff was 30% off - still too expensive for me!

    5. William Ashley at Bay/Bloor
    - moving sale
    - As of Dec. 27, lots of stuff was 15-25% off, and some was an extra 15% off after that.
    - $600 bread and butter plates, anyone?
    *Bonus: There also seem to be a lot of Xmas Pikachus around if you happen to be looking for them.

    6. Gobelin's Fine Linnens at Bay/Bloor
    - moving save
    - Not too much stuff left on Dec. 27, but I did see some pretty brightly-coloured towels.

    7. Star Men's Clothing (or something like that) at Fairview Mall
    - I think the sign said only 7 days left on Dec. 26.

    8. Sears at Scarborough Town Centre
    - I don't think it's closing, but it did look like they were clearing out the entire top floor - it was all clearance and more than half of the floor was empty. Still a fair bit of adult clothing and some shoes left 2 weeks ago.

    9. HMV at Eaton Centre
    - I'm not sure if this is closed already - they were closed on Boxing Day, but there was still lots of merchandise inside.
    - Last week the dvds and electronics weren't actually reduced that much, but the toys, clothes, etc. were 50% off, I believe.

    10. The Children's Place at Eaton Centre
    - Everything was 60% off as of Dec. 26. Seemed to be a lot of cute stuff left.

    Happy shopping!

    The Honest Ed's/Fabricland stores were known to be closing as of last year when the condo project made the news.

    Toronto Sun's Tuesday paper mentions one location of Omni Jewellers is closing-the flagship location at Keele & Hwy 7.

    Where are William Ashley China and Gobelins moving to?
    Hmm, William Ashley is moving down the road to The Colonnade. http://www.williamashley.com/moving-..._store=default

    More to add to the list. This seems to be store-closing season.:

    American Apparel north of Yonge/Dundas
    - Tons of stuff 85% off and lots of plain wholesale clothing for set prices like $5 or $10 (Jan. 26).
    - Lots of the stuff left is ugly or extra small, but there is some decent stuff too for sure.

    Little Tutoo - on Queen St. east of Hudson's Bay but underground in the PATH
    - I think stuff was mostly about 50% off, but there were some great quality winter hats for toddlers for $2 marked down from $15 ish (Jan 26).

    Ardene - Yonge/Eglinton Centre
    - Some clothes 50% off, but the accessories didn't appear to be on clearance. Not a lot of good deals (or not better than usual). (Jan. 24)

    Tip Top Tailors -some store closures likely http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/graf...tail-1.3953307

    Don't know if the George Richards stores could be affected as well-big & tall clothing is hard to find for men in retail.

    Hard Rock cafe at Yonge-Dundas square-set to close in May. Shoppers is said to be taking over the space (which would be a better location than the present basement in south end location in the Toronto Eaton Centre).
