Artists and those hoping to give art-making materials as gifts for the holiday season and who were expecting the recently closed DeSerres Art Supplies store on Danforth to be reopening this month are in for disappointment.

The outlet closed in early October and initially expected to be reopened at its new location at 1556 Danforth Ave., just west of Coxwell, by the middle of November.

But store manager Sarah Novotny told East York Chronicle in late November in reply to an email query that “due to construction delays we aren’t going to be open until sometime in January at this point.”

At press time work appeared to still be going on at the site, located in a former dance studio. -Gary W-P
