Where Was Walker Stores in Carleton Place?


Jennifer from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum and I are trying to place where Walker Stores was on Bridge Street in Carleton Place. Any ideas? Circa 50s. We found it.



Update- Thanks to the readers of the Tales of Carleton Place Walker Stores was located where Cook’s was, now The Dress Shop. Wally and Mary Cook also managed the store.




By the way, you can still buy some of those Gordon Mackay swimsuits once sold at Walker Stores in Carleton Place.
