Ontario-based housewares & home decor discount retailer Kitchen Stuff Plus will be closing its store at 400 King Street West in downtown Toronto. Signage indicating the closure went up this week.

The 22,000 square foot location became available as a temporary space for Kitchen Stuff Plus after MEC moved its flagship to 300 Queen Street West in April 2019. Kitchen Stuff Pluss announced in January 2020 that the store would open in the 300 King location in February – a month before the COVID-19 pandemic began. They stock a wide range of supplies from grey kitchen cabinets to the latest trends in kitchen faucets, appliances, and home organization.

With the construction of “Pure Plaza“, a 47-storey BDP Quadrangle-designed residential condominium building due to commence, the existing long-term retail tenants at 400 King had relocated or closed in the recent years and saw a number of short-term pop-ups.

These included The Detox Market, which took over for Timothy’s Coffee in 2015. Sportley, which moved in to The Adventure Travel location in 2019 and the aforementioned housewares retailer which opened in the former MEC space.

Toronto sports fans would recognize the “Sportley” brand as being the neighbour of Tim Hortons at 322 King Street, at the northwest corner of King & John Street.

Signage on Kitchen Stuff Plus is directing customers to the Liberty Village location, which opened in 2012 and is “9 streetcar stops! 10 minute drive! 30 minute walk!” from the current King & Peter store.

Kitchen Stuff Plus has 24 locations in southern Ontario, including a location at Yonge & Bloor, Orfus Road at Dufferin and on the Danforth at Pape.
