It looks like we can officially stop dreaming about which cool international retailer will take over the enormous old Chapters plot at Richmond and John. Michaels, the gigantic craft supply chain, has broadcast its claim on the space by placing “Coming Soon” signs in the windows, according to BlogTO. It seems a bit odd that the vibrant downtown venue will be home to mass amounts of knitting supplies and fake floral arrangements—but on the bright side, non-crafty downtown dwellers will have a new spot to pick up inexpensive home décor items and minimalist storage cabinets.
