When the sign came down in 2013 after it was announced Hi Tops was closing after about 100 years in business, everyone wondered what would become of it. Surely this rich part of Peterborough's history wouldn't end up in landfill.
"I feel like the sign is a piece that needs to be on display as a big part of Peterborough's history," Smith tells PTBOCanada, adding that this whole process of getting the sign and installing it came together over the past couple months with Kimball and an amazing group of people in town.
Signs that Fall has arrived in Peterborough... the windows have gone up at Hot Belly Mama's and The Old Stone Brewing Company for the season. No more enjoying a meal in the summer breeze.
The Reggie's chip truck near Trent University is closed for the season (but don't forget to visit them in East City!).
The Silver Bean Cafe is closed for the season.
The fountain at Millennium Park has been turned off for the season.

Sebastian Bach, who grew up right here in the Patch, has been back in the hood the past couple days with a couple buddies, and has tweeted several local spots he's been at, including Hot Belly Mama's, Riley's, and Harvey's. So if you thought you'd just been spotting Sebastian Bach lookalikes all over the Patch, well, you may well have... but it might also have been the real Sebastian Bach.
Assault/Mischief/Possession of Drugs Arrest:
On the 15th of November at approximately 12:02 am the accused and several friends were at Riley’s Old Towne Pub located on George Street North. A dispute occurred between the accused and Pub staff and he was asked to leave. The accused started to walk toward the doors carrying a glass of wine. When the staff member advised the accused that he could not leave with the glass of wine, he threw it at the front doors shattering the wine glass. The staff member physically detained the accused and the police were called. As the accused was being detained, a struggle ensued and the accused bit the staff member on the left hand.
The police arrived and as a result of the investigation the accused, Sebastian Bierk age 42 of Lindroft New Jersey, was arrested. When Bierk was searched he was found to be in possession of approximately 1.95 grams of marihuana. He has been charged with assault, possession of a controlled substance and mischief under $5,000.00. Bierk has been held in custody and will appear in court later this morning.
