Founded in 1876, in Oshawa, Ontario by Robert Mclaughlin, this firm was well-known for its fine products. McLaughlin’s company grew steadily with a number of brands across Canada.

The Winnipeg branch was opened in 1901 or 1902. Land was acquired at the north-east corner of Princess Street and Ross Avenue, the former location of the Grand Union Hotel which had burnt down in 1894.
