Time to say goodbye. It’s been announced today that T&T Supermarket is closing its only location in downtown Toronto.

The grocer will be vacating its current location that’s situated in the Portlands neighbourhood at 222 Cherry Street by January 30, 2020.

“Despite the upcoming closure, we are happy we can serve our downtown Toronto customers through one last Chinese New Year, which falls on January 25th this year,” said Samuel Lee, Store Manager, in a release. “We are committed to providing the same level service and quality products our customers have come to expect from T&T until our last day so our customers can celebrate Chinese New Year 2020 with all their favourite Asian foods.”

While this news is devastating for T&T’s downtown fans, at least the chain isn’t going under.

The B.C-based grocery store still has seven locations in the GTA that folks can visit to grab all of their Asian grocery essentials.

“I want to sincerely thank our Cherry Street customers and colleagues for their loyal patronage and support over the past 12 years,” said T&T Supermarkets CEO Tina Lee in a release announcing the news on Tuesday. “We are truly saddened to leave this location, but are committed to serving our downtown customers despite the closure.”

BlogTO reports that T&T plans to still serve its downtown customer base by launching an online shopping platform

This online shopping experience is expected to launch in January, so it’s not live on its site just yet but stay tuned.
