I remember seeing a TV profile of Honest Ed Mirvish, noted Toronto discount merchant and patron of the theatre. He recalled the first little shop that his father owned in a rundown part of town. "Ladies of the evening", gaudily dressed would parade up and down on the sidewalk outside the store. His father remarked to him, "Now that's the business to be in! You sell it and you sell it and you still got it!"
