Mini Grid - New Store Coming Soon!
Mini Grid Expands to Grand Prix Kartways
Mini Grid, the Toronto based motorsport retail specialist store, will be expanding to a second location in the Grand Prix Kartways facility at Downsview Park this spring it has been announced.
The new store, which replaces the current Grand Prix Slots, will undergo a complete facelift and renovation upon Mini Grid’s arrival in mid-April. The planned reopening of the ‘new’ store will be early June. The design objective of the new space will be one that is bright, warm and welcoming to younger enthusiasts and families while still true to the hard core enthusiasts. Still with the emphasis on slot cars, the new venue will also expand its range of slot car offerings with new lines and up to 3 operating slot car circuits on display for customers to sample. When complete the store will encourage further participation through hands-on interactive displays featuring a dedicated children’s slot car track and ‘play action’ zone; along with a wide selection of everything motorsport that Mini Grid is known for with books, DVD’s, models and clothing. The centerpiece of the new store will be a brand new ‘professional’ 4-6 lane slot car track that will be available for general lapping and racing; and also for parties and corporate events in conjunction with Grand Prix Kartways.
The current tenant, Grand Prix Slots, is owned and operated by Ernie Mossetti. Mossetti wants to focus his time and effort on his new venture, the design, engineering, manufacturing and promotion of Mr. SlotCar, a high-end slot car line that has been positively received in the slot car industry with his first release of the Le Mans winning Mazda 787B.
There is more exciting news and information to follow as this new venture develops. We will keep you abreast of all of these developments as they happen.
