Blog Guelph: Macdonnell Street

macdonnell street, originally uploaded by Accordion Chick.

Acker's Furniture spans the width of a city block with two entrances, one on Carden Street and this one on Macdonnell. The business has been operating in this location since before sliced bread. For the more literal among you Ackers opened in 1917.

If you’re looking for something to do, I recommend a trip to the upper floors of this very large Guelph landmark. The vintage red convertible is not part of their marketing campaign but it speaks well to the experience awaiting you inside.
