Honest Ed Mirvish: The World’s Most Unusual Shopkeeper

In this final year of Honest’s Ed’s, we offer an in-depth portrait of the larger-than-life Ed Mirvish, from his humble beginnings as the child of Russian immigrants who ran a small family grocery store on Dundas Street, to his being made a Commander of the British Empire by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The film travels with Mirvish to his birthplace of Colonial Beach, Virginia. Ed shares stories about opening Canada’s first bargain store, Honest Ed’s, in staid postwar Toronto, his 35 years in show business, and his creation of Mirvish Village
