On the weekend I strolled past the Bloor Street Side of the Jewish Community Centre and noticed something: Greg's Ice Cream was gone.
At first I thought I was just not being too observant, given that I walk often in that area. Later I did some online research. Greg's shuttered last month. The store opened in 1981 at another location: the north side of Bloor Street, between Bedford and Avenue Roads. The closures are permanent.
I stepped into neither store location (including the now-gone one down in the Distillery District), as I very rarely eat ice cream, but it's still sad to see a venerable Toronto brand close shop.
