Walked past the Park Ave. store this evening and noticed an *À VENDRE* sign in the front window. It didn't say what was for sale but I don't imagine they're talking about the six-foot chopsticks in the window display. It was after 5 p.m., so the store was closed and I couldn't go in and ask.
Maybe I'm paranoid -- earlier in the day I learned that Phos, CDN's analogue to La Boîte Noire (tho' in many ways better), is closing in August, a catastrophic loss for the cultural life of the neighbourhood -- so, please calm my fears. Does anyone know for a fact that this purveyor of excellent bean curd and other soy-based products isn't in danger of closing?
