With the recent spike in gas prices, we try to remember a time when a trip to the gas station was an enjoyable one. Many Toronto citizens have fond memories of stopping at the Joy Oil gas stations that were operational many years ago. Joy stations were first introduced in Canada in the 1930s with the intent of offering discounted gas prices to the public. The last existing station, which is now located on the south side of Lake Shore Blvd. West, is now a designated heritage site. Phoenix Restoration had the pleasure of restoring the historical building to its former glory, and preserving the memories held by the citizens of Toronto.
Check out a recent article by the Toronto Sun to see the fully restored Joy Oil gas station:
Phoenix Restoration participated in the 2018 EllisDon Charity Hockey Tournament this past weekend to raise money for Threads of Life, a charity dedicated to supporting families after a workplace fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease. Thank you to all the participants and to those that came out to show their support!
