Name of old Mount Pleasant furniture store

Like the title says - in the 80's, there used to be a furniture store in the block east of Foster's Chapel up on 4th Street NW between 31st and 32nd Avenues NW..

Do any of you remember it and if so, what was it's name?

If my memory serves me correctly, it was approximately where those condos/townhomes are in the same block east of Fosters but west of 2nd Street NW..

Don't know the name, but it's interesting to hear it existed as before those condos/townhomes that block was a bible college


glenbow.org


EDIT: Actually I take that back, looks like the Bible college was just where the funeral home is now.

Those condos are where the Safeway distribution warehouse used to be, at least that's what I was told.

May have been a Safeway warehouse before the furniture place.

1950s airphoto shows 3 houses and otherwise empty land for the eastern half of that block.

2002 Google Earth shows same buildings as is there now.

That's the problem - I can't find any aerial shots from the 60-80's that would show what was there.

Another view of the Berean Bible College with the eastern part of that block appearing to be undeveloped...
