The time has finally come for an iconic East Vancouver establishment to close its doors for good.

The Dairy Queen Brazier located at 2109 East Hastings has officially torn down its signage and is marked as permanently closed online, flagging that the 50-year-old eatery has ceased operations.

Back in 2017, Mosaic Homes submitted a rezoning application to the City of Vancouver to redevelop the property to make way for mixed-use development with secured market rental housing.

This proposal meant the old-school DQ restaurant (built in 1969) would inevitably have to be demolished to make way for the new structure.

If you’re in need of some signature soft serve from the ice cream giant, not to worry – there’s a nearby Dairy Queen located at 4191 Hastings Street in Burnaby where you can get your fix.
