(to moderator, this is related to Montréal's food history)
There used to be two (af far as I remember) food factories on Laurier Street close to one another.
The Usine Stuart (makers of the "May West" ) plant closed a few years back (late 80's , early 90's ?)
now Glatt's the Kosher meat packer (I really never knew what they actually did, I asume smoked meats ?) will be closing (or is already closed).
Gentrification finally wins in the area.
