The building housing one of Thunder Bay's best known family business' is being demolished.  

The land the Famous Shoe Shop occupied will be used by the NorWest Community Health Centre. 

CEO Wendy Talbot says the land will be put to good use, transfering into a greenspace honouring the store. 

The Famous Shoe Shop opened in 1965 on Simpson Street, and closed its doors in January.
