Long defunct BiWay brand set to be reborn in Toronto


Canadian discount chain BiWay is about to make a comeback.

The chain, which closed down in 2001, had some 250 stores across Canada at its peak, and was in business for 30 years.

Eighty-nine-year-old retail vereran Mal Coven, who was instrumental in building the original BiWay, says he plans to open a 7500 sq. ft. “BiWay $10 Store” next August in Toronto, reports CTV. Coven says the new store will carry “branded, quality goods.” The stores will sell children’s wear, household furnishings, mens and ladies wear, toys, toiletries and food.

Coven says he plans to open four more stores by 2020, and says the preparation work he’s done this time around far exceeds what was done for the original store.

“I’m excited about this. The store will be a success, no question.”
