Iconic discount store Honest Ed's is selling more of its hand-painted signs — about 6,000 — starting at just $1. A portion of the proceeds will go towards a scholarship fund being set up at Toronto Police Service's 14 Division.
Known for its Las Vegas-style marquee, low prices and pun-heavy signs, the massive Honest Ed's in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood has become a landmark in the city.
Saturday's sign sale is an opportunity for Torontonians to take home a piece of the retailer before it shuts its doors for good on Dec. 31, 2016.
The store also had a sign sale last year, which similarly drew huge lineups around the block.
Honest Ed's and its surrounding property went up for sale in 2013 and were sold to a B.C. developer last fall. Redevelopment plans for the site were unveiled earlier this year, featuring more than 1,000 rental units, artist studios, a covered market and space for pop-up shops and food trucks.
