Sadly, Nettleship’s Hardware on Parliament Street is closing today after being run by three generations of the same family since it first opened in 1920.
In Doug Fisher’s May 11 blog post, he reported that “Stephanie and Bert have been clearing away the remaining inventory and getting ready to shut the doors. Bert has a new job nearby at St James Cemetery. Our best wishes go out to them for their future plans. The store has been a Parliament Street fixture for three generations. The late Marg Taggart and her son Don Taggart and his brothers and sister were born and lived there in the adjacent building. There are customers and friends everywhere throughout the neighbourhood. Its closing is a sad note in Cabbagetown’s life.”
Our best wishes to the Nettleship’s family.
