Asphalt and Sidewalks!!!

Ottawa Writers Festival

Thanks to all of our valued customers (and a few new ones) who visited us at the Ottawa Writers Festival. It was a brilliant six days. We have some signed copies of some of the writers who attended.

Updates on Elgin Street Renewal

The past few months have been somewhat of a challenge but Elgin Street, in its new incarnation, is beginning to take shape. Some paving has been done at the south end. We can see a few sections of real sidewalks emerging. Curbs are beginning to appear. In front of our shop, the new roadbed has seen its first layer of asphalt. We hear that the street might re-open to traffic sometime in December and the finishing touches will be applied in the Spring. We’ll kind of miss the Porta-Potty that stood outside the shop for a time.:)

Free parking is available in the City Hall lot every evening and weekend. There’s a pay lot on Somerset at Metcalfe and on MacLeod just west of Metcalfe.

Thanks for your continued support. We need it and we thank you for it.
