Depanneur Rapido expanding?
According to information gathered by The Bulletin, the popular “Rapido” corner store on Front Street will expand in the near future.
City records show the company owning the Rapido building at 43 Front Street, is registered under 3877434 Canada Inc. The same company owns the neighbouring 41 Front Street. Both addresses are in a commercial zone.
The city is looking for densification, including heritage buildings, designed with commercial ventures on the ground floors of these buildings in this older section of Aylmer.
Front Street, between Principale and Eardley Road, is home to several commercial and cultural establishments, but the concept of having more businesses on the street’s ground floors remains unfulfilled. Rapido’s expansion could help reach that goal.
Rapido’s owner, Marc-André Arvisais, preferred not to reveal the details of the expansion plan. “When everything is in order we will unveil our plans to the public,” he told The Bulletin.
