Grassroots shuts the doors to its Annex location

Grassroots, a go-to Annex destination for sustainable lifestyle products, is closing. Apparently, with the recent sale of its building came a rent increase that was out of reach for the local shop. Though this is sad news for the Bloor Street community, fans of the chain can still trek to the Riverdale location for organic clothing and bedding, natural shampoos, non-toxic cleaning products and baby toys. And, until the store’s last day on August 24, shoppers can get great deals on environmentally friendly stuff: the whole place is on sale with discounts of up to 75 per cent.
