    Valumart in the Beach on Queen E is open. Also, Rowe Farms just down from there is open as well.

      Not in the East End, but if you're in a pinch, Bruno's is open every day of the year except for Christmas day.

        The IGA on the Danforth just west of Pape has been open for every summer statutory holiday I can remember....

          Hit Chinatown, supermarkets always open till 9 or so... Steaks not the greatest quality though, maybe grab something else.
          good luck,

            Ok so Sun Valley was open, until 5 unfortunately. Luckily, the Chinese supermarket across the street was open and very busy, If anyone still needs some last minute BBQ items, Id recommend going there. For that matter, im sure nearly all Chinese Supermarkets will be open today, and the one at Birchmount and Danforth is open til 9pm FYI.

            Anyway, Happy Canada Day people, have a cold one and enjoy some grilled meats!
