Could it be true? Drake’s beloved OVO flagship in downtown Toronto is showing major signs that the location is permanently closed.
OVO first had a pop-up in the retail space back in 2014, and eventually, it became the forever home for the flagship.
If you take a walk by the storefront, you’ll see nothing but bare walls, cement flooring, no clothing, and no brass owl in sight—seriously, it’s completely empty.
Although the closure has yet to be confirmed by the company or employees, the 899 Dundas Street West store is no longer listed on the OVO website as a location.
Plus, a real estate investment package states that “The main floor is leased as a flagship store to a prominent international retailer with term extending until February 2021.”
From all of the evidence, it definitely looks like the OVO flagship is no longer. However, until there’s an official statement, we won’t know for sure if it’s totally closed.
There also isn’t any fear that the company is in financial trouble. Drake’s OVO line continuously performs outstandingly well, with drops selling out very quickly.
You may no longer be able to browse the racks at the downtown Toronto spot, but Luckily three other locations in the GTA are still open!
