Pioneer thought it would be great to update everyone on some neighbourhood news - some that are merely rumours, and some that are facts!

First out of the gate: DECA (Danforth East Community Association) has a newly revised Facebook page, so we encourage everyone to add it to your groups (because Pioneer knows y'all are FB fanatics, right?). The benefit to this is that you will be able to get community news right in your news feed!

Now on to real estate:
Pioneer always has its ear to the ground when it comes to real estate and rumour has it that a Starbucks is moving in to the former real estate office at the corner of Coxwell and Plains Road, just south of O'Connor. This is good news because it protects the local, small business coffee shops on Danforth but provides all those morning commuters on Coxwell with a good cup of java!

A rumour that can be confirmed, thanks to the sleuthing work of DECA member Susan S., is that a Dollarama is opening up at Danforth & Woodbine in the former Ethiopian Community space. No opening date has been set as of yet, but Pioneer will keep everyone posted.

Happy pioneer-ing!


  1. Hmmm. I searched and couldn't find a DECA facebook page. Is it called something else?

  2. You can check out the DECA Diaries blog. A good resource for whats happening in the hood (Just like this place!)
