Blog Guelph: Ackers at 80


Ackers reflections, originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy.

Ackers Furniture has been selling appliances and household gear in Guelph since 1917 - a full 80 years by my calculations. Their official address is 42 Carden Street, but you can also enter the store from MacDonell Street.

I would conclude that any downtown Guelph business with this stretch of longevity has got some wisdom to share. Is anyone from city hall asking them to share?

On the other hand, you may be curious about what the City of Guelph looked like last October or maybe Spring.
