From dry cleaners to Chinese cuisine, you can be sure to find what you are looking for in the Beach.

As government incrementally opens up smaller businesses on Queen Street East, I’m sure Beachers are looking forward to supporting them as we know they are a huge part of our unique community fabric.

Thank you to Chris Nicholls for this store facade photo he took on Queen Street East in the Beach in 1980.
