Goodbye Duke's Cycle.

Duke's Cycle on Queen, where I got my bike, burned down this morning in the big Queen Street fire. It had been in business since 1914 and was still run by the family of the original owner. Crap.

UPDATE: The Queen outlet of Suspect Video is gone too! They probably had copies of stuff in there that's going to be practically impossible to replace. CRAP!!

UPDATE AGAIN: Awful pictures available here.

Suspect? Gone? And your comment about stuff that's going to be practically impossible to replace -- that's more accurate than I'd like to care for. There's going to be a lot of out of print stuff that they are just going to be screwed on. Sigh.

Poor Dukes!

What a great store! It will be missed, couldn't' believe it when I heard the news this morning.

Hope Suspect can rebuild as well

I was quite dismayed when I saw the fire and heard about the stores on the news this afternoon. Luckily nobody was seriously injured. qicetrini and I went to Suspect Video rather often in the past, and I've been to Duke's a few times as well. Hope Suspect can rebuild as well.
