  1. I can remember when Dairy Queen stores in some areas closed for the winter months. In my hometown the opening of the Dairy Queen was a sure sign spring had arrived.

  2. Yes, they would close and at Christmas they'd use it as a Christmas tree lot.

  3. There was a DQ near the corner of Lambton and Weston Road in Mt. Dennis. Walking there for an ice cream or a sundae at the end of a summer day was one of the great rituals of the season. It was seasonal, as I recall - empty from October to May.

    I knew the "high street" stretch of Weston that passed through the neighbourhood was truly dead when it closed some time in the late '80s. The street has never bounced back - I wonder if the Eglinton LRT station due to open sometime in my lifetime will help put some life back into it.

  5. There's sort of a modernized one on broadview at mortimer and an original one at st. Clair east and pharmacy...teems with people in summer evenings and smells like an old dairy queen. Yummy.

  7. Shoot, I should have remembered the St. Clair one. Grew up at Pharmacy and Lawrence area. But we went to the one at Victoria Park and Lawrence. Became a 'Steak Queen' I think.

  10. I live by the Mt Dennis location Rick M mentioned remembering a location by. My older cousins and sister had always mentioned remembering a Dairy Queen. As I can never recall, I'm curious as how it looked and stumbled onto your blog. Wishing I could see a photo of it one day.

    1. I have photos of the Dairy Queen on Weston Road at Bushey Avenue somewhere in my pile of camera cards. I will post it here and on the Mount Dennis facebook site when I come across them. You will see the photos at some point. I took the photos before it was torn down. I am sure I have the destruction photos too. What a shame these former businesses are long gone.
