hahaha! description of the year. i have to admit i share the same scares…
Now THAT was funny!!! And funny how stores like that were dreaded when we were kids – now Home Depot is one of my fav stores!
hahaha i’m glad it’s a shared experience/feeling…now things have totally changed, i find myself getting excited going through the lumber sections and looking at electrical fixtures, and let’s not forget wood stains…
Totally disagree…Beaver Lumber used to be my favourite store when I was a kid!
Me toooo! I always loved their huge rotating bins of nails! I miss my BL winter touque.
My family used to own a Home Hardware in Northern Ontario! I have loads of memories playing hide and seek and goofing around the store with my sister and cousins when we were little. It was a little touch and go when the chain was bought by Home Hardware, but we all wear the red now as well.
Aaaah yes, im 20 years old right now and i also remember running around the store with my brother….good times. I also remember getting excited to go there because they had the quarter candy machine. and i still have a special piggy bank they gave to us for free…you put money in the beavers mouth and well, it comes out from the back end lol…good times goood times….
I worked for Beaver Lumber for almost 25 years…….was so sad to see it sold off and closed…….many memories for sure
