An excellent article about this wonderful store is below and is worth sharing here. I’ve received many emails and letters from decendents of the McWhirr’s and relations of those who owned and managed the store in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Undoubtedly, our dear Miss Lizzie shopped there with her $4.00 a week allowance. That allowance, by the way, would have the purchasing power of $98 today.
