Photos of Local Stores

SAHRA members are very fortunate to have a multitude of great stores and services immediately available in the stretch from the 401 down to Lawrence on Avenue Road…known as Upper Avenue.

Our thanks to student volunteer Olivia who took these pictures of the shops and services from Wilson down to Brooke on both the west and east sides of Avenue Road which demonstrates the selection available to residents within our Neighbourhood.

There are many more shops and services from Brooke all the way down to Lawrence.  Search on the Internet using ‘Avenue Road shops’ and you will find various listings of information on the shops.

See the section New Stores and Services on Avenue Road below the Photos for updates on new shops/services who have recently opened for business on Upper Avenue.
