Dundas grocer The Horn of Plenty is closing after 42 years

A longstanding centrepiece of Downtown Dundas has announced it is sadly closing its doors. 

The Horn of Plenty has been a quaint Dundas fixture for 42 years, specializing in gourmet foods, organic eats, ice cream, body care products, and beyond; most of which was sourced from local suppliers and makers. 

Located in a near century-old building and former movie theatre at 24 King Street West on the main downtown strip, The Horn of Plenty has seen numerous lives since it was built between 1928 and 1929. 

According to an announcement from the shop on social media, the building will soon see its next life as The Horn of Plenty winds down operations this month, with their final day set for January 31st, 2024.

“This decision was not made lightly, and it comes with a heavy heart. We want to take this opportunity to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve had, filled with fond memories and cherished moments,” wrote Jason Gloster, owner of The Horn of Plenty who took over the business from his parents Neil and Denise Gloster in 2005.

“Our store closure marks the end of a chapter, but we carry with us the countless memories and the joy of serving our community. We could not have reached this point without you, and for that, we extend our heartfelt thanks.”

What’s next for 24 King Street West remains to be seen, but the building was purchased last year by Stephen Alexander, owner of well-known Dundas butcher Cumbrae’s located right next door to The Horn of Plenty.
