You may have heard of The Hudson’s Bay Company :)
The Hudson’s Bay Company is the oldest company in North America and one of the oldest companies in the world.
The company was incorporated by English royal charter in 1670 as The Governor and Company of Adventurers of England trading into Hudson’s Bay
The first Hudson’s Bay Company in Winnipeg opened in 1826 but later moved to its existing location which opened in 1926.
The store is over 15 acres in area and was built almost completely of materials from Manitoba.
From the time the first sod was turned it was a mere 14 months until its doors opened to the public.
There were over 50,000 people through the doors by noon opening day.
