The TTC is celebrating the end of an era in Toronto.

Honest Ed’s at the corner of Bathurst and Bloor is set to close permanently at the end of this year.

Mayor John Tory, TTC chair Josh Colle and son of the late Ed Mirvish, David Mirvish, officially unveiled a temporary art installation at Bathurst Subway station on Tuesday.

It includes art work and signage inspired by the massive discount store’s famous bright red, yellow and blue hand-painted signs. You can enjoy it until the end of this year.

If you can’t make it to Bathurst station in person to see it, the TTC has put together a YouTube video (below).

TTC spokesman Brad Ross says a permanent installation is being developed.
