Eatons was the only department store in Moncton in the 60s, the era before Woolco. Eatons was a 6 story downtown building in what was then a pretty small town (40k), which served as their catalog mailing center. Eatons probably outsold all the other retail in Moncton combined.


With 1,000 workers, Eaton's was the city's second largest employer when it closed.

Yupp.. as a teen in the 90s, you would meet in front of Eatons at the Eaton Center (really Club Monaco, but Eaton's was behind it).

Too young for the Eaton's catalogue. It was all Sears for me in terms of catalogues.

But Eaton's stores were a big go-to for my family.
