Who remembers Trickey’s (pictured here in the 1980s, long after it had been owned by the Trickey family)? In the 1930s Norman Trickey opened a variety store at 7 Main Street West which became a favourite of local schoolchildren. After his death in 1952, the business was carried on by Norman’s daughter Dorothy Sacken. Most recently it was 7 Main Café.
Before Trickey’s, the shop was owned by J.W. Gledhill who opened a business there in 1886. Gledhill was a graduate of the Dominion School of optics and his store carried a full supply of optical goods as well as a wide variety of items ranging from clocks, jewelry, and fancy china to school supplies.
