Pusateri's opening at Bayview Village

syoung Dec 26, 2009 11:59 AM

Don't look now but Pusateri's is going to give McEwan Foods a run for its money by opening an uptown store at Bayview Village opposite Chapters at Roots' old location on the north-east area of the mall. It's going to get interesting.

    I'd take Pusateri's over McEwans any day.

      Well that makes it accessible for us people in downtown who resort to zipcar for shopping trips. Good spot as there is High $ traffic there. I wonder if the crowd on the old Pusateri's spot is going to reduce as I tried to go there before Xmas and couldn't even enter the parking lot the line was so long. Seems it will be bigger than the tiny location at Yorkville. Good location wish em luck.

        This will make parking at Bayview Village even more challenging that it already is ;-)

              Hmm... I've never had a problem with parking at Bayview Village.

                hopefully they make their aisles bigger.. I will check them out for sure. I prefer McEwan though as he's so proven as a chef

                  Second that .. in fact find it to be one of the easiest places to park within the city

                    That "ease of parking" may spell McEwan's early demise. The bookstore is already gone. Even three days before Christmas most of the stores at Don Mills were not packed which is not a good sign in retail.

                      The bookstore has closed up? I hadn't heard about that.

                        Yup, from what I've also heard, it's gone.

                  There is easy parking over by the big grocery store (Loblaws I think?). Anyway I just park there and then walk. And as an added bonus this location right on the subway line, unlike the current Pusateri's location, or McEwan.

                    The Yorkville location of Pusateri's is located right next to the Bay Station exit ;-)
