Timothy Eaton 1834-1907
Timothy Eaton was the founder of the large all-Canadian department store chain bearing his name. It began as a small dry goods business in Toronto in 1869. By his death in 1907, he had built up a giant retail store in Ontario’s capital city along with a country-wide mail-order business and a big new branch store in Winnipeg, the first of many such “T. Eaton Company” business establishments that, in time, would spread all across Canada.
On December 30, 1999, Sears Canada Inc. acquired all of the common shares of The T. Eaton Company Limited. The acquisition included 16 Eaton's store locations, the "Eaton's" name, and selected other assets, including trademarks and other intellectual property, the Eaton's website, and Eaton's tax losses. Effective the same date, Sears Canada Inc. and Eaton's amalgamate and are continued as Sears Canada Inc. The common shares of Eaton's were delisted from The Toronto Stock Exchange
