St Clair W. lot in the Junction, gets drilled for soil samples.

Once the site of the Canada Packers Research Labs the south side of St Clair West,  west of Gunns Rd, was converted to retail use after the meat company left the area. The 1st retail businesses on the site were a Parts Source which remains and a Rexall Pharmacy business which has closed  and the building remains. Recently the parking lot had a drill truck drilling for soil samples, usually the first sign of a sale or redevelopment.
