Outside of Korry’s Clothiers To Gentlemen, bouquets of flowers have begun to appear.
The man behind the iconic Danforth shop, Saul Korman, died in his sleep over the weekend from a heart attack.
An unwavering champion of Toronto’s Greektown, Korman eventually became widely known as the ‘Duke of the Danforth.’
His boutique has been a mainstay on the popular Toronto stretch since the 1950s.
“The city’s going to miss him,” said his son Shawn, during an interview with Global News.
“I’m going to miss him for sure.”
He was the ambassador, the salesperson, the inspiration that helped make the whole of the Danforth what it is today: a destination. My condolences to his wonderful family and to all of his many friends. We will miss him and we will miss hearing his voice on the radio.
