The location of Stedmans V & S has a lot of history. The people of Carleton Place loved the small town service and the back-to-school specials. Did you know Gary Strike owned Stedman’s in Carleton Place for a time?
Stedmans was founded in 1907 by 3 brothers, Samuel, Edward and George Stedman in Brantford, ON. The business of selling and distributing greeting cards gave way to the opening of a book and stationery store. Over the years, the commitment to providing competitive prices, dependable quality and personal service saw Stedmans stores evolve into a very successful variety oriented provider.
Stedmans, together with the Macleods chain founded in western Canada in 1917, became officially known as Macleod-Stedman Inc. in 1964.Stedmans was purchased by Gamble-Skogmo in 1962 from Stedmans Brothers Ltd. Wickes Corporation in 1980, later becoming a wholly owned division of Macleod-Stedmans Inc. and is now a member of the Tru Serv group of companies. Tru Serv Canada was purchased by Rona Hardware in 2011.
