A Local Eyesore

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All about buildings: Commercial buildings or store fronts.

This is the former Foodland grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

Photographed last autumn when it had been standing empty for a couple of years. It’s an even bigger eyesore at the moment as the parking lot is currently being used for storage by the construction crew ripping up the highway through the town.

A lot of the small towns in this part of Ontario were struggling before the pandemic so I suspect there will be a lot more empty buildings over the next 12 months.

I was planning on photographing it again this year as it deteriorates more but the building is partly hidden by construction equipment and materials for the crew ripping up the highway through town.
