'Save' Ray's, A Taste of India petition gets 5K signatures
Petition presented to company that runs Scotia Square food court
Ray’s Lebanese Cuisine and A Taste of India were given just two months to leave the food court.
There were about 20 to 25 people on hand at the food court Monday to present the petition to Crombie REIT, the company that runs the food court.
In late January, after more than three decades as a tenant, Raymond Khattar was told he must pack up and go, without any explanation.
“They should have given me at least six months for me to look for another place to move,” said owner John Nakka.
Khattar met with representatives of Crombie REIT Monday to voice his concerns. He said there is a slight possibility he could move to another spot in the mall but his rent would increase from $5,000 to $10,000 per month.
Both Ray's and A Taste of India must be out by March 31.
