DISCOUNTED HISTORIES

General Stores of Canada: Merchants and Memories

Historian and author Rae Fleming explores Canada’s love affair with shopping through the history of its general stores. General Stores of Canada: Merchants and Memories shows that for much of Canadian history, general stores, and their antecedents, trading posts, supplied most if not all the needs of Canadians.

In these stores, we shopped, we told stories and we even borrowed money. As well as being purveyors of goods, storekeepers played the role of justices of the peace, fire chiefs, and even psychologists. Don’t miss this panoramic and personal history of general stores in Canada.
