They didn't survive at their new location, too far for a lot of their 
steady customers to drive to.

And for the back story, they were evicted by the landlord from their 
location on Page Ave & about 170 to allow the landlord to house a 
venture of some sort in all the suites in that building.

Of course rather than a long lease which apparently was expected, the 
building and the suite is now empty.  Very sad state of affairs.

There are sales of material still going on from their warehouse, but 
they are fairly advanced and a lot of material is gone.

I was first taken there when they opened, in 60 or so.  So very sad to 
see it close.
