Sam’s Saved

The Star is reporting this morning that The City of Toronto has designated the Sam The Record Man store as a heritage building, protecting the signs from being auctioned off. Kyle Rae said that “[the City will] sit down with the owner or future owners as the property is being sold, and we hope to be able to maintain the two discs and `Sam’ signs on the rooftop as part of the ongoing history of Yonge Street.” If it was possible to slow-clap over the internet, we’d be doing it right now. Well done, Toronto.
If you’d like to leave a comment, please do so in our ongoing post on the Sam’s sign, which we’ve kept updated over the past few weeks as new information has come in (and which provides a whole lot more context for the whole situation).
