Eatons was great. I missed it for years after it closed. It always seemed to have the perfect professional clothing in brands that fit me well. They had interesting furniture, and I always thought their towels and linens were of excellent quality. In fact, I still have and use a few items all these years later.
I had forgotten all about Metropolitan! I liked that store too--they had one here when I first came here as a university student. Woolworth's and Woolco were other places that I used to shop at occasionally. I think we used to have Marshall Wells and Field's and Saan also. And Zellers. I guess we are just about down to Sears, Walmart and the Bay for department stores here, and even they are not as complete and well-stocked as they once were.
