The Cabbagetowner noticed signs in the window of Sharna’s Fashion Braids and Wigs at Gerrard Street East (just east of Parliament Street). After 24 years, the store will be closing. I asked if they would be opening a new location, but there no plans to do so at this point. It wasn’t common knowledge, but Sharna’s also sold some excellent chili sauces under the Tata’s brand which the Cabbagetowner has enjoyed greatly – I have it on good authority that Spruce on Parliament Street will be carrying that particularly fiery torch now. Farewell!
With Fry Haüs, Global Food & Spice, Maggie’s and now Sharna’s all closed it’s unclear what the future of this short strip holds. We have heard rumours from other sources outside of the neighbourhood that the building might be torn down. With the expected development across the street at the south-east corner of the intersection it is expected that density will increase dramatically in the upcoming years.
