Over the weekend via his Instagram, Drake teased fans with a photo of the new OVO store that he is opening up. With the iconic owl, dawning over the doors, fans can easily spot the location on the street. This is a step up from the OVO pop-up shop Drake held in August. The store appears to be opening up in Toronto judging from the caption and hashtag. The hashtag "6" side is a reference Drizzy’s hometown, Toronto, which he created because the number six appears in the city’s area codes and is also a nod to Drake’s upcoming record Views From the 6. According to Complex, Toronto-based fans have seen the store in the flesh.
