It was a bittersweet celebration with emphasis on the sweet.
Several Main Street merchants surprised their neighbors at the TD Canada Trust branch with Whimsical Bakery cupcakes this afternoon to thank them for many years of friendship and service. The branch is closing today, February 9, 2018, and will merge with the bank’s other Huntsville location on North Kinton Avenue.
“The TD bank are our neighbours and although they aren’t moving from town, they are moving out of our neighbourhood,” said Catherine Cole from The Great Vine. “And we are going to miss them. They are a big part of our lives.”
“I’m devastated,” added Allie Chisholm-Smith. “I make weekly, if not daily visits here.”
TD Canada Trust and its predecessors have had a branch on Huntsville’s Main Street for almost 120 years, and in the current Main Street location since 1926. There’s no word yet on who will occupy the building next.
