Car2Go said to be coming back

Some media are reporting that efforts are under way to bring back the Car2Go car sharing program that left the city a few months ago. Their deal fell apart over high fees to the City and the company's demand to allow customers to leave vehicles in residential areas. Councillor Mike Layton is sad to be pushing for their return.

Alaska has cut back

The stylish furniture store has cut back to half its space on Yonge Street. It cleared out of the old Petit Gourmet space that is now for rent. The retail business is tough in the online world.
