It’s not just restaurants that are having a hard time. Popular sneaker store Exclucity is closing the doors to its only Toronto location after five years.

According to BlogTO, the sneaker shop which is located on Queen West is being replaced with cannabis store Cori which is set to open this fall.

Exclucity founder Trent, aka Trent Out Loud, says that the store’s lease was up and operating online was proving to be more profitable.

“As a business owner, I had to think of what the future will be like,” says Trent in a statement to BlogTO. “My customers were already online. I’m not recreating the wheel.” 

At one point, Exclucity had eight locations across Canada, with four in the GTA.

The sneaker store isn’t the only place as of late that’s closing its doors. It was just revealed that Mendocino and M Boutique are shutting its stores for good and iconic Queen Street restaurant Cafe Crepe has just sadly closed as well.
