Hollywood Canteen stamp department moving

The stamp department of Hollywood Canteen – a cinemabilia store owned by Mike Orlando – is moving to the business’ new location at 1841 Danforth Ave. on July 28.

Hollywood Canteen moved to Toronto’s Danforth Village from its former location in Midtown Toronto in October 2016, when the famed bargain store Honest Ed’s was preparing to close its doors. The store’s stamp department will now make the move across town.

Managed Ted Wright, the stamp department is also offering 40 per cent off all regular-priced items.


With about half a century of experience in the hobby, Wright’s shop is one of the few remaining stamp stores in Toronto. He was formerly part-owner of George Wegg, a stamp store located in Toronto’s philatelic heart – Victoria Street and Adelaide Street East – for many decades.

Wright is also one part of the Vincent Graves Greene Philatelic Research Foundation Expertizing Committee and an active member of most major philatelic organizations, including the Philatelic Specialists Society of Canada; The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada; the British North America Philatelic Society; and the American Philatelic Society.
