The store, with the fire-truck red sign and striped awning, has stood on Baldwin St., near Kensington Ave., for more than five decades. The company now has locations in Etobicoke and Brampton and ships meat to the U.S, according to The Star. We came back with an offer we couldn t refuse, the younger Leider said, adding that the new occupants will definitely not be meat purveyors and european Quality Meats and Sausages, a stalwart butcher shop in the heart of Kensington Market, will close in the spring, yet another harbinger of the old immigrant quarter s fast-changing fa ade. Rumours circulated earlier this year that the shop was put on the market for $1.8 million. While Larry Leider, son of founder Morris Leider, would not discuss specifics of the sale, he confirmed the Kensington branch will shutter April 7. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
