I really only recall its interior, to be honest.

And before the expressway widening a few years ago the stub was much longer — I believe it extended from the little bit that is still there all the way up to the ramp at the interchange. And at one time the point where King becomes Weber was actually a third intersection of King and Weber.

Hiway building always faced Weber and was completely torn down to build Zehrs and adjoining mall.

The Hiway market's address was 2722 King Street East. Before the "hole" for highway 8 was excavated, Hiway Market fronted on King Street. In fact one could park on King Street when you shopped there. Charcoal Steakhouse occupied part of the property for years before moving to Weber and Fairway Road. After the Highway 8 bypass was started, the "front" door was relocated in the corner by Weber Street.

I recall the entrance was facing the side street that ran between Weber and Old King / Expressway (is that Fergus Ave?).  As a child I recall most of the parking being off Fergus and Weber and a negligible amount on the King side.  The Charcoal was on the 2nd floor at the end opposite Fergus Ave.  I recall HiWay Market being huge with a restaurant inside, a banking area where my parents would pay utility bills, etc, the huge hardware area in the basement.  It was a cool place.

I believe that the first photo above was the original Hiway facing King. Before my recollection!

This is my recollection, too.

The future T&T has a big sign in its window announcing 30 days to opening - so that's Dec 6, then.

I was in Westmount Plaza yesterday around 4pm and it was at 30 days then, too. So perhaps December 5?
