The CAFE Harbord location has re-opened after the owner brought in machinery to remove the 4,000 pound cement blocks placed in front of the store by Toronto by-law officers.

Cement blocks went up at two more CAFE locations, a day after similar blocks went up at the dispensary’s location in CityPlace.

On Thursday, the entrance to the shop on St. Clair Avenue West, near Lansdowne Avenue, was blocked.


It appears the same thing also happened at the location on Bloor Street West near Ossington Avenue.

The CAFE Harbord Street location had cement blocks put in front of it on Wednesday, but heavy machinery was brought in to remove the blocks and the store has since reopened.

There is no word if any arrests were made at either locations.

Toronto police and officials have been trying to shut down the four illegal shop locations since April.
