1928 Simpsons Department Store Catalog on DVD


The dry goods store which would later become the Robert Simpson Company opened in 1858 in Newmarket, Ontario. The store was destroyed by a fire in 1870 and reopened two years later, in 1872, in Toronto. The company was renamed the Robert Simpson Company Limited in May 1896 shortly before Robert Simpson's death in 1897. The Simpsons store in downtown Toronto included one of Toronto's most famous and exclusive restaurants, the Arcadian Court, which opened in 1929. The store was acquired by Hudson's Bay Company in 1978, and the Arcadian Court is still in operation today. Throughout its history Simpsons was the traditional carriage trade department store in Toronto—competing with the rival T. Eaton Co. The motto "You'll enjoy shopping at Simpson's" was conceived by Robert Simpson himself and remained company's slogan until its acquisition by the Hudson's Bay Company.



This is a beautiful catalog - 320 pages, many in color of this great Canadian retail institution on a Gift Quality DVD.
