Name: Stock TC Contact: 2388 Yonge Street, 416-489-1020, stocktc.com, @stock.tc
Neighbourhood: Midtown Owners: Cosimo Mammoliti (Terroni, Sud Forno) and Stephen Alexander (Cumbrae’s) Covid-19: Hand sanitizer stations; masks are mandatory while shopping; two-metre social distancing stickers throughout the store; the capacity of store is monitored and limited to just 40 people at at time. Accessibility: An elevator that reaches all three floors can be accessed from the Helendale Avenue entrance.

Yonge and Eg’s giant new gourmet grocer is a joint venture between longtime friends Mammoliti and Alexander. Housed in the historic Postal Station K, the building has been transformed to include a fresh pasta station, a butcher and cheese counter, a fresh produce section, a prepared foods department, a coffee bar, a gelateria, a bakery and a wine shop. There’s also a dine-in restaurant and bar upstairs, but for obvious reasons, those aren’t opening just yet. “We spent a lot of time talking about our businesses—food and wine—and how one day we should bring it to the next step,” says Mammoliti. “But how do you do more for the city? How do you make a better product? This is the product of years of talking and hashing it out. This is the future.” Take a look around.

Here are co-owners Cosimo Mammoliti (left) and Stephen Alexander:
