An Iconic Toronto Furniture Store Is Closing After 83 Years


Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. And after 83 years in the city, one iconic furniture retailer is closing its doors for good.

Later this year, The Art Shoppe will be shutting down its 70,000-square-foot showroom.

Founded in 1936, The Art Shoppe has long been a go-to for furniture collectors, interior designers, and celebrities for high-end, luxury furniture. And while its long-time customers may be sad to see it go, they can take advantage of the massive store closing store that’s happening right now.

Known for its white-glove service, The Art Shoppe is now offering its services and merchandise for 20 to 50% off, making it the biggest sale the store has ever had.

The closing sale makes fine furniture much more attainable for those who are on the hunt.

Shoppers will be able to find high quality pieces, like a $18,000 heirloom antique console from Italy or a $40,000 EJ Victor dining room root set, for steep discounts. And shoppers will also be able to find more affordable pieces like moderately priced console for $1,200.

All floor samples and in-stock merchandise are available for extraordinary discounts at 71 Kincort Street in the Castlefield Design District.

Think throw pillows, fine art, rugs, lighting, furniture for the entire home, and more. Until the store closes, customers can expect the same attentive service that The Art Shoppe is known for, including interior design and custom orders.

While the retailer hasn’t announced its next steps just yet, Mark Bannon, Director of Furniture Solutions for Tiger Capital Group, which is conducting the strategic sale on behalf of The Art Shoppe’s ownership team, says, “Everything has its season. Like so many disrupted sectors, the luxury furniture business is entering a new phase in which smaller-format, Internet-based showrooms are on the rise. The Art Shoppe is a powerful brand with the potential for another chapter. Stay tuned.”
