They really appreciate the finer things up in Yorkville, where a novel new business idea will save you from the dual agonies of unresolved snack cravings and untethered French shirt cuffs. Two very different companies - men's accessory company Cuffwear and baked-goods chain BakeryHaus - are about to be prominently featured in a pair of high-end vending machines set to be installed in Yorkville's Cumberland Terrace building.
The fully-automated, rather-spiffy digital vending machines - similar to the ones used to dispense cupcakes at the Ex this past year - will stock BakeryHaus' donuts and Cuffwear's cufflinks ($65 each) side by side. Any increase in the availability of donuts is always an improvement - and I can't imagine an emergency cufflink scenario that would require instant satisfaction, but hey, that's one way to avoid the cost and hassle of retail.
The vending machines launch on Monday November 3rd at Cumberland Terrace, 2 Bloor St. West.
