Drake General Store


1144 Queen St W
M6J 1E6 Toronto, Canada


(416) 531-5042


The new store, which goes by the name Drake Hotel General Store, packs in a lot more than what you'd expect to find at a typical general store. Store designers and directors Carlo Colacci and Joyce Lo have done an amazing job coming up with fun and interesting things to sell. They've imported snacks like Hostess Yodels. They've stocked the shelves with interesting reads like Martin Parr art books, the Le Cool guidebook series, and naughty colouring books by local artist Mallory Diaczun. There's also black and red toilet paper, giant Niagara Falls match books, mustache kits, Sunshine Girl playing cards, Montreal Expo badges, iconic Hudson Bay blankets, Malin + Goetz bath products and t-shirts from their Shared clothing label that were on sale at their now disappeared pop up store that lived a few doors down earlier this year. The place is so well-curated and so fun to browse in that it immediately becomes a serious contender as one of the best design stores in the city. It's not a place you'd go to buy furniture, lights or stuff to put in the kitchen. But it's the kind of store that is just so darn interesting, brings back memories from years past and incorporates such a wide assortment of affordable stuff you'd never find under one roof anywhere else.
