Info on McMurray’s of North Street
« on: October 18, 2020, 02:40:53 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I’m the granddaughter of the owner of McMurray’s & was just looking for any information on the place....old stories, memories of the place & people, etc. Family memories of that time are fuzzy.

My grandad died when I was a baby, so I never really knew him, & my daddy died 30 years ago. I did learn (from one of the threads on here) that my daddy (Howard McMurray) was in charge of Westcott Wholesale (?) think it was in the same building, on one of the upper floors.

So if anyone has stories they’d like to share, I would love to hear them. I’m trying to put personalities to the people in photos & hear about my dad before I was even a twinkle in his eye  ;)

I worked there from 83 until 88. I’ll give some thought to it & write some memories. If you’ve any questions let me know. I might be able to answer some of them.
It was a great place with the best of people.
