Stradwick’s Closing after 60 Years

This was Stradwick’s Flooring & More final day of business after about 60 years in Cornwall and at the same 11 Balmoral Avenue location, close to Cornwall’s VIA Rail station.

The building has been sold and the owners are packing it in; no doubt there are mixed emotions after such a long run.

To help the community remember them, this corroplast sign was given to the SD&G Historical Society for its collection of business signs.

This 1966 Stradwick’s invoice was recently donated by Nick Cox.

Our file includes this 1987 newspaper advertisement,

as well as the ad from 1991.

A store representative told us that if any stock remained at the end of the day, it would be donated to a pre-determined charity.
