Serving Canada for 60 years.
In 1952, a visionary by the name of General Robert E. Wood, chairman of Sears Roebuck in the US corresponded with the president of the Canadian retailer, the Robert Simpson Company about forming a 50/50 alliance.
The union would tremendously increase Simpson's mail order business, it would create a series of stores that would be designed and modeled after the US Sears Roebuck, and would serve the Canadian market in an enormous way.
The first store for this union was opened in 1953. Twenty years later, between their retail stores and catalog division they hit their 1 billion dollar mark. In 1976, the company became Canada's largest retailer.
As with all good things that must end, the Robert Simpson Company was acquired by Hudson Bay in 1978. The partnership of Simpson and Sears was dissolved. The company was officially renamed Sears Canada in 1984.
