Administrative History
In 1952, U.S. Chairman of Sears-Roebuck and Company, General Robert E.Wood, contacted President of Robert Simpson Company, Edgar G. Burton proposing a partnership between the two companies to serve the Canadian retail market. In September 1952, a merger was signed between the two to create Simpsons-Sears Limited. The terms of the agreement were 50-50. The two main objectives were to expand the Simpsons’ mail order business which was sold to the new company and to build new retail stores across Canada that were modelled on the Sears, Roebuck’s design. In early 1953, operations began with the first Simpsons-Sears Spring/Summer catalogue that was delivered to 300,00 homes across Canada. In September 1953, the first Simpsons-Sears retail store opened in Stratford Ontario and in December 1953 the second store opened in Kamloops, B.C. In 1953, with a 7.6 million dollar investment, construction began on the Simpsons-Sears store located at 3660 Kingsway in Burnaby. This was the second Simpsons-Sears store to be built in British Columbia. The store was designed by two Vancouver architectural firms Sharp, Thompson, Berwick and Pratt and Gardiner and Thornton. The new Burnaby Simpsons-Sears was touted as the most modern mall in Canada with the facing of the store consisting of Travertine marble imported from Italy and the main floor included fourty eight miles of brass strips incorporated in the terrazzo floor which was made from marble chips mixed with white Portland concrete. An exterior promenade, built from British Columbia fir and bolted with copper and brass was built around the exterior of the store. The promenade provided an outdoor display area for garden furniture and other large items. The retail store officially opened on May 5, 1954 with Simpsons-Sears executive members, managers and the Reeve of Burnaby in attendance. T. Boyd Haskell, from Spokane, Washington was hired as the Burnaby retail store manager and C.W. Jaggs, former Simpsons' general manager for British Columbia became manager of the Simpsons-Sears mail order business in British Columbia. A ribbon cutting ceremony took place during the opening event with Burnaby Reeve Charles W. MacSorley in attendance along with other dignitaries from Simpsons-Sears including President of Simpsons-Sears, E.G. Burton; Chairman of the board of Simpsons-Sears, Charles W. Burton; Vice President of Simpsons-Sears, G.F. Trotter; Mail Order Manager for Simpsons-Sears, B.C., C.W. Jaggs and Manager of Simpsons-Sears, Burnaby, T. Boyd Haskell. Over 10,000 people attended the opening of the store at 11:00 a.m. and it is believed that throughout the day, over 75,000 people went through the new store. T. Boyd Haskell was manager of the Burnaby Simpsons-Sears store between 1953 and 1962. After graduating from college, Haskell joined the Sears-Roebuck department store chain. In 1953 he moved to Vancouver from Washington State to set up the new store in Burnaby. In 1962, Haskell left Simpsons-Sears in Burnaby and transferred to the Sears store in Los Angeles. During his time in British Columbia, Haskell served as the President of the Greater Vancouver Tourist Association (1958-1959), President of the Community Chest and Councils of Greater Vancouver (1960) and was also a member of the board of directors of the B.C. Lions football team. Haskell died in Arizona in 1969 at the age of 54 years. In 1978, the Hudson’s Bay Company purchased “Simpsons” and converted many of the department stores into The Bay, including the store in downtown Toronto. Sears stores continued to carry the name “Simpsons-Sears” until 1984 when the named changed to “Sears Canada”. The Simpsons-Sears store (later named "Sears") located at 4750 Kingsway (Metropolis at Metrotown) closed it's doors in 2018.
