  1. Bruno's stores are open.

    1. A tad late ......

      This is what CityNews is saying is OPEN/CLOSED:
      http://www.citynews.ca/news/news_3207...

      I would CALL first.

      Family Day, Monday, Feb. 16th

      Open

      Selected supermarkets,
      Some malls,
      Some federal government services including the post office,
      City Hall,
      TTC and GO on a Saturday schedule.

      Closed

      Some supermarkets,

      Some malls,

      Banks,

      Schools,

      LCBO/Beer stores,

      Libraries,

      TSX.

      Malls

      Some complexes - like the Eaton Centre, the Yonge St. strip and the Pacific Mall - are always around on the holiday because of their special status as 'tourist areas'. But unlike last year - when a lot of them stayed open - Family Day 2009 will see most of them with their doors closed. Here's a brief list of some of the bigger shopping spots in the city and their plans for Monday. The few that are open will likely have reduced hours, so check before you go.

      Open

      Eaton Centre

      Pacific Mall

      Woodbine Centre

      Closed

      Albion Centre

      Centrepoint

      Dufferin Mall

      Fairview Mall

      Mississauga Square One

      Promenade

      Scarborough Town Centre

      Sherway Gardens

      Yorkdale

      Vaughan Mills

      Supermarkets

      Closed

      Loblaws

      Fortinos

      Valu-Mart

      Metro

      Food Basics

      Sobeys

      Open & Closed

      No-Frills

      Some stores are open on Family Day, with varying hours. Others aren't. A lot depends on the one in your area. The No Frill's at 1591 Wilson Ave. will be letting you buy groceries on Monday. But the ones at Victoria Park Ave. or Eglinton Ave. will be shut tight for 24 hours. Check here to see if your store is one of those where it's business as usual.

      Price Choppers

      Similar to No Frills - some places are open, but many others are closed. Check here to find out which description matches the store near you.

      1. pretty much every Chinese supermarket will be open.

        1. Bruno's at Yonge and Heath is open. They have a decent butcher as well!

          1. Whole Foods at Hazelton Lanes is open until about 6. CI stopped in today!

                  If you are really in a pinch, Shoppers Drug Mart is open (at least the one near me is). Some locations are quite good for basic groceries.
