About the Building


The construction of Saskatoon's biggest department store was said to have taken 100 men, 40 horse teams, and a caterpillar shovel, just to build the foundation! Made of Tyndall stone, the fossils are abundant, especially in the upper levels. The darker material at the base of the building is a coarse-grained black granite stone.

What kind of beast is holding the canopies in place over the doorways? The Eaton's store occupied the building until 1970, when they moved to the new Midtown Plaza. Army and Navy Department Store moved in until Saskatoon Public Schools took it over in 2000.
