|Boushey's Fruit Market (1946-2016)|
Mark Boushey said,
"It's bittersweet. We realize how iconic it is, but it's also a tiring job,"
"Everything has a beginning and end. We have to move on."
I am embarrassed to admit that I have always pronounced the store name as "Boo-shey's" and it took the news reports of the store's closing to learn that the owners pronounce it as "Bow-shey's".
When I walked by on July 31st, folks were signing a piece of bristol board with messages of thanks and best wishes - the neighbourhood loved Boushey's! (See: CBC http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/bousheys-closes-70-years-1.3702592)
