T. Eaton Company was formed shortly after Canadian Confederation and soon became rooted in the country’s cultural landscape. The department store was part of Canadian life. The Eaton’s mail-order catalogue was called the “Family Bible” and the company’s lavish Santa Claus parade launched the Christmas season. When the last Eaton’s store closed its doors on Feb. 26, 2002 many Canadians mourned its death. It wasn’t the business empire they would miss, but the loss of a national institution.
