The Early Years

It all began in the early autumn days of 1900 in Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Under the tutelage of its determined and distinguished co-founder, George Dennis Horsman, and with the assistance of his father Edward B. Horsman, the local hardware store E. B. Horsman & Son originated. In 1907, George Dennis visited Vancouver and with that, a new journey began.
