A Parkdale visit from Toronto’s “On the Grid”!

Recently we were paid a visit at our Parkdale Outpost by the Toronto edition of On the Grid!

On the Grid is a community focussed global initiative started by NY design studio Hyperakt. The uniquely organized website is a”designer’s neighbourhood guide” to cities around the world, curated by creatives from all over. What a fantastic online publication to be a part of!

We are so pleased to be featured by the lovely folk that had a peek around our Parkdale shop!

Thank you On the Grid for the wonderful photos!

Blog TO Love!

Recently Kid Icarus’ Parkdale outpost was featured on Blog TO. You can check out the article here!

NOTE: As of July 2016 we are sadly closing this location as our sales grow along with our rent hikes. Rent increases of 10% year over year are not sustainable. We hope Parkdale can survive the next wave, sorry we don’t have the resources to continue the fight. – Michael.
