Since the late 1960s, Medigas, the homecare division of Praxair Canada, Inc., has been providing physicians and their clients with respiratory therapy devices, sleep disorder equipment, homecare aids and more.
This location closed sometime around 2007 and relocated to Lasalle Blvd. Since that time the building has remained vacant and locked.
It was purchased by Rona Cashway to be demolished along with The Cedar Hut and become an addition to Rona's property.
As of August 18th, the building is still standing and the inside is being salvaged for parts. Demolition will follow shortly after.
