Queen Street institution to close as Cirone retires

Joe Cirone has been hard at work in his grocery store on Queen Street East, enjoying the view from the top of Munro Park Avenue for more than 50 years.

Customers, friends, and well-wishers are invited to drop by the store on Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, to offer Joe their congratulations and help clear out the last of the stock from the shelves.

What does Joe plan to do once the doors to Cirone’s close for the final time?

“We’ll see how it goes,” he said.

Cirone has seen many changes in his time on Queen Street, many of which he recounted when Beach Metro News dropped by to celebrate his 50th anniversary last year.
