Iconic Budds sign taken down from Kitchener storefront
Budds clothing store sign taken down for restoration project
The iconic Budds sign gracing the outside the heritage building at King and Young Streets in downtown Kitchener is no more.
It was taken down over the weekend as restoration began inside to make way for two restaurants on the main floor and a second-floor office building.
The second-floor area the sign was located in will be replaced with a glass frontage that will face on to the street.
