Biographical history

J.H. Perry Department Store was built around 1890 and it was one of the major department stores in Ladner, BC. It was first owned by H.J. Hutcherson and he sold the store to S.W. Walters in 1912. After Walters, Mr. J.W. Atkey bought the store in 1918 and he sold the store to Mr. R.F. Young who in turn sold it to Mr. J.H. Perry in 1934. Up until that time, the store included a grocery department and was known to many as the "White Store". In 1965, Gordon Peacock bought the store but retained the well known Perry name. The store operated, under different owners, until it was demolished in 1989.
