Q: What is accessibility like at your venue?
A: Supermarket just obtained a ramp for out front (although usage is to be confirmed) which can take up to 600 lbs. There are 3 steps. Washrooms are not fully accessible, although they can work for some. Closest accessible transit are the new Spadina streetcars. There is a Green Parking lot on Bellevue, which has some accessible parking spots and very limited parking on Augusta Avenue.
