Dates of existence

fl. 1900-1960


Thomas Barrie (1866-1942), Otonabee-born Peterborough businessman, began his business career with the J. T. Fairweather Co. Fairweather’s was then at the north-west corner of George and Simcoe, and in 1900 he acquired the Fairweather builing. He shared the building with Turnbull’s department store. Barrie’s moved to its attractive new building just south of Charlotte in 1912. Turnbull’s took over the whole building; during this renovation, Turnbull’s store collapsed in August 1913, a disaster that left six dead. Barrie’s expanded to several western locations, including Vancouver, Regina, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Toronto. During the 1930s, he reduced his western story. He was a life member of Rotary and of YMCA, a former president of the chamber of commerce. He was survived by his wife and sister in 1945.
