Ahh, the media. This story quotes TWO business owners (TWO! Out of hundreds and hundreds of businesses along this stretch of Bloor St… hardly a representative sample).
Let’s all pretend the sky is falling because an ICE CREAM SHOP sees a decrease in business between AUGUST and OCTOBER! It’s truly the End Of Days, and bike lanes are too blame.
Matthew Lee, a Koreatown cafe and ice cream shop owner, told CTV Toronto he believes his nightly business has dropped by as much as 70 per cent.
“We’ve seen a significant drop in a lot of businesses in the area especially after 8 p.m., 9 p.m.,” he said. “So it’s been an adjustment period for businesses here.”
